As some of you may know, my family recently moved to a new home.  Actually, it is the first time in five years that we have lived in a house - not an apartment.  That means Annie and Denise, my daughters, finally have a yard to play in!  It is in-town, so there is not a ton of yard, but there is enough space for them to be able to get outside and run around.  Not surprisingly, they are super excited.

Recently, as we were exploring the yard, one of the kids spotted something out of place in the flower bed along the house.

It was a stone with the word KAY carved into it.  But, as you can see from the photo, it is not just some chunk of rock.  It is a carved stone.  The kind that a professional memorial (grave stone) maker would have crafted.

I am not a geologist...  I haven't even had a geology class!  But, in my opinion, the stone doesn't look that old.

So, I'd really love to know what the purpose of the stone is.  Did someone bury grandma in my flower bed?  Or, as some people have suggested, is it the grave marker for a beloved family pet?  While that explanation seems to make the most sense, Kay doesn't seem like pet-like name.  And, if it is a pet, why not bury him or her in the backyard, instead of the flower beds?

So, what is your opinion?   Or, maybe you know the people who used to live in my house and you can tell me for sure what the deal is.  You can send us a message through the 92 Moose app or message me on Facebook.
