A while back I was asked to teach a workshop at a couple's property near Port Perry Ontario. They assured me they would have plenty of stone for the course. I reminded them they would need a lot. The husband said his wife had been bringing back stones from the side of the road in her car for weeks. He thought they had enough .
The week before the workshop I drove to their place just to make sure. On my way I noticed a sizeable 'groove' in the middle of the gravel road. I followed it down and over two concession roads, all the way up the driveway to their house!
The husband was standing there. I asked about the rut.
" My wife saw one that was too big to put in the trunk, so she chained it to the bumper and brought it home"
