    It was bound to happen sooner or later, but last night Rocky succumbed to calcium deposits. He was a good rock, I've had him for 43 years.

    Here he was a young whippersnapper:

    As he aged he did so gracefully. Full of unconditional love. He never chased a school bus or barked at a mailman, though at times it was warranted.

    Here he is just last year enjoying his favorite thing, just laying there:

    Today I will have a ceremony for him at a local pond, where I will skip him across the surface to his ultimate final resting place. Your thoughts are needed as I enter life without Rocky.

    :cry:

    What's the over under on TGP members who open this thread expecting news of the death of Sylvester Stallone?

    I hope not.

    Rocky wouldn't have wanted it this way. He was the strong silent type.

    I know. I might go to the quarry tomorrow and find a rescue rock if I'm emotionally strong enough.

    So sad. On the other hand, he didn't seem to do very much lately and had turned into a bit of a recluse.

    Rocks are a cash crop here in the Ozarks.

    I can see in that second pic he'd turned into a shadow of his former self. Hard to believe they're the same Rocky.

    I've heard not so good things about those rock mills. They just turn them out with little concern for their health and happiness.

    That's a hard rough loss to deal with. My condolences.

    Many times we would watch his favorite video together. I hope y'all enjoy it as much as he did.

    Outlaw, you should make a list of all the songs you can think of that have the work 'rock' (or a derivative thereof) in them, and post them on TGP.

    You know, in rememberance of your beloved Rocky and stuff...

    In actuality I do. But I digress.

    Let he who has not lost a beloved rock cast the first stone.
