At a field trip to Glen Rose, TX, students made pet rocks and took them home to give to their parents

The Glen Rose Nuclear Power Plant hosted a field trip for local boys and girls from Dallas, TX.

The plant is known as:

This turned out to be fun for everyone. I was looking at a pet rock my wife had kept as a keep sake from her son's visit to the Glen Rose nuclear facility when he was in grade school, back in the day. I had to use Elmer's glue to put back one of it's feet. He's a cute little pet rock. It was a fad of those times. Everyone was buying pet rocks and creating their own. I even created pet bricks that I called brick boys and brick girls. I tried selling them in a yard sale but nobody bought so I had several extra paper weights.

Looking back at all this, I sometimes wonder, 'could that pet rock from an area within close range of a nuclear power facility be radio active?' Of course not, I mean it would be 36 years too late to do anything about it. It's been in our house that long as a reminder of my wife's son's class field trip.

Something for me to think about while I write my article for Persona Paper. Have a nice day everyone. Anyone interested in making brick boy paper weights, one day I will make a YouTube and upload it to my site.

Pet rocks. What a parent won't accept as a gift from their child. But they're ours. We love 'em.

I would love to see a video showing how to make a brick boy!

I have to admit I have not saved any pet rocks from when my kids were young.
