"Everybody must get stoned"

Well it seems I've gotten caught up in the Rock Hiding craze.

It's where people paint / decorate rocks and place them for others to find !

And true to form I put my own spin on the hobby.

I was a member of Suffolk Rocks til I posted this picture --

As of today I've 17 members.

I go around and place Confederate themed rocks for people to find --

Will Mr Peanut be next ?


With all the Monument Madness spreading, I'm wondering if Mr Peanut is next ?

Toward the end of the American Civil War the South's food supply was very limited.  Peanuts or "goober peas" were a main source of food for the Confederate army because they grow easily in the South. Soldiers griped noisily about having so little to eat and the poor goober
Listen


( Downtown Suffolk VA )

Will folks who have allergic reactions to peanuts throw a rope around it and topple his statue ?
Or will the ANTIFA fanatics realize Confederate soldiers used them as a food source and decide that the statue must come down !



Mr. Peanut was born when schoolboy Antonio Gentile 
submitted a sketch to win the Planters contest for a brand icon.

The family got $5 for the submission !


Stay tuned as the Monument Madness continues !

PORTSMOUTH MONUMENT UPDATE !

Some members of Portsmouth city council are attempting to move the Portsmouth Monument.

Image result for Portsmouth confederate monument pic


However ----

Cliff Page---- " At the 22 August meeting of the Council, Councilman Nathan Clark produced a title and deed, which no one had been able to find for years, showing that the land beneath the monument belonged to the SoC. A deed and title was recorded for the monument itself and well known about for years. Therefore, both land and monument are private property. Mayor Rowe put forth a motion for the Council to authorize a study to see what it would cost and the logistics necessary to move the monument to Cedar Grove Cemetery. Councilman Clark voted against this motion reading the law and the oath of the Councilmen and stating that he would not break the law. Clearly the Mayor and the other members of Council that voted on this measure committed waste, fraud and abuse of taxpayer dollars in authorizing such a study. The monument is not for the City to move or dispose of... It is private property. They exceeded their authority in the attempt to break the law, by an illegal taking. The Commander of the Stonewall Jackson Camp, informed the Council that if the City took any steps to move or remove the monument, that the CoS would file an injunction with the Courts. Private property is protected under the US and Virginia Constitution, but John Rowe has in the past shown that he has a disregard for private property and Federal and State laws governing historic assets belonging to the peoples heritage."

Moving a monument from Private Property ?
