Suddenly, Unnamed Town doesn't seem quite so ridiculous...

Last summer my hubby and I had to attend several meetings to organize our small town's centennial celebration. We were perusing the minutes from the previous meeting (which we'd missed), when I spotted one item of note and pointed it out to Mr. Pinkerton. The item simply read: "The painting of the town rock was discussed." Which is a Corner Gas type of a statement if there ever was one. It prompted much hilarity from Mrs. Beazly in a later phone conversation, after which she said, "You'd better start writing that book." 

It turns out that small towns aren't the only places that get obsessed with painted rocks. I can just see the Washington Post headline: "The Painting of the Perry Rock was Discussed". Pundit and Pundette.
