I throw rocks at houses. (Confessions of a rock thrower!)

Yes. I throw rocks at houses. I started in back high school.

I’ve resisted the temptation for years but fell off the wagon a few years ago. I’m back at it.

And my rocks, they aint’ pebbles. No sir these are big. Big chunks of granite (when I can get my hands on them).

But no homes are ever damaged! Ever! Why not?

Because….Not all houses are the same.

As an inspector I rarely come across houses that are not livable, but…

Theses are not!

They’re just painted rings under ice.

Yes, I’m talking about ‘the house’ in the game of Curling. It’s the target zone where the game is scored.

And those rocks I mentioned, they are chunks of granite. They’re 40 pounds each. So ‘throwing’ them is just an expression.

This is one of the ways we spent the winter . For those who don’t ‘get’ the game take a look at the following video.

Here is one of those shots that, like in golf, it’s why you play the game!

So get out and enjoy the season, it can’t all be about work.
