Hey, did anyone used to have a pet rock as a kid? Here's a site, [url=http://www.petrockpals.com]Pet Rock Pals[/url]. It has games and now you can get a pet rock that is painted as an animal. This site is pretty cool for kids, it's got coloring pages and games online. But some of the pet rocks are limited in production and will become "extinct".
I had a pet rock back in the 70's. Bad thing was the family went on vacation and I forgot to take it with me and it died of starvation! lol
Seriously we moved and I have no idea what happened to it. I loved the directions that came with it. How to teach it to fetch? Throw a stick, then say "fetch" and throw your pet rock. After a while he will learn and land close to the stick! lol How to breed pet rocks? Put one on top of another and hit with hammer. And to think somebody made money off a rock you can get out of your driveway!
Although most of the prominent rocks are in our legislators heads, here are a few that you might be able to appreciate. If nothing more, enjoy the beautiful music of the "Merry Widow" waltz...
Happiest of new years to all..........................
The origin of the pet rock is very fascinating. I did a paper on it in high school.
The originator, Gary Dahl, was in a bar and his friends were complaining about their pets. He came up with the pet rock and sold it in a box with small holes, straw and a punny training manual .
The fad did not last that long but long enough to make Dahl a millionaire who then opened a bar.
