I have had this rock just about my whole life. It has traveled with me to all of my homes. It IS my favorite rock. I remember finding it when I was about 4 or five years old on a walk with my Mom. She would always take me out and we would spend the day walking in the woods or fields around our home and I would always come home with handfuls of sticks, stones, acorns, feathers and other things. I haven't changed in 50 years!
