RMan needed to do a whole bunch more mowing before the family (and their pets) arrived, to make the area safe for children and animals.
Scallywag came with us for this visit - we were going to be away for too long for RSon to pop by the house, spend an hour or two and feed him. Not being used to driving for extended periods, old Scallywag took a couple of days to acclimatize - choosing to take it easy from a high vantage point on the patio. Scallywag is besotted with RMan, and he has to have him in his sight at all times!

Thankfully, we had medicated him against ticks and fleas prior to leaving town, so whether he walked in the overgrown area, or the newly mown area, it didn't bother us.

And, to top it all, RMan took MKid for a spin on the mower - I wish I could zoom in to this photo and show you the grin on MKid's face.

Well done, RMan. You did good - really good :) And, I can imagine that if any of the fallow deer visit out property whilst we're not around, they now have a fully prepared meal waiting... LOL
But, talking about stones - this one got shattered by the mower. Is there anyone out there who knows a geologist, or does anyone know what type this stone could be?
|Sharp, shiny glass type areas|
I'm tending towards the meteorite type, but RMan reckons volcanic. Unfortunately for that theory is the fact that we have no volcanoes in the area (the closest extinct one is in Pilansberg which is 1600 kms away).
|"Air" / gas holes?|
It has shiny, almost glassy-type sections within, which are incredibly sharp. And seems to be made up of a number of different rock types all bunged together. As well as "air" (gas?) holes...
