Entire rows of parking spaces at the local grocery store have been usurped by huge piles of recent snow, and we're supposed to be getting another 6-8 inches tonight and tomorrow. Yippee. Not! That's a mid Eighties Buick Electra dwarfed in the background.
The last ice age glaciers left these "balancing rocks" everywhere in New England. This one is in a nicely landscaped space next to my grocery store. Our old family home in Leete's Island had a huge boulder similar to this but more than three times the size, seemingly precariously perched on the hill behind the home. Climbing to the top of it was a rite of passage for generations of children in my family.

Madison's Sculpture Mile
I think I've mentioned before in this blog, the sculptures sprinkled around my town, known as the Sculpture Mile. They are by world-class sculptors and are changed out occasionally, usually after 24 months in one place. These two are in the Stop-and-Shop complex in the center of town, my grocery store.
None of the sculptures in my town are as interesting as this half-buried giant in St. Louis, MO, sent to me by Annie, loyal reader and blogger of This and That with Artichoke Annie, also in my blog roll at the right.
