The Rock

I'm told that there is a huge rock near a gravel pit on Hwy.25 in rural Iowa. For generations, kids have painted slogans, names, and obscenities on this rock, changing its character many times. A few months back, the rock received its latest paint job, and since then it has been left completely undisturbed. It's quite an impressive sight. Be sure to scroll down and check out the multiple photos (all angles) of the rock. I thought the flag was draped over the rock, but it's not. It's actually painted on the rock too.

Here's the artist Ray "Bubba" Sorensen.

AWESOME Work, RAY...Thank you!

"God Bless America"
"Our Soldier's & Vet's"

I suppose I will get snotty-grams from ACLU types that

but we country hicks who like freedom and promote democracy need a little fun also.
(What liberal leader promotes helping anyone get democracy? Can you name one??)
