On the corner of Union and Commercial, you'll find 9 Stones. Body- Face- Spa- is what this building is all about. Never been inside these doors, and don't plan a visit soon, but it's an attractive building from the outside with a great name. At least, I think so. Often, I find some names striking and very interesting. I just love them; don't know why, just do. They just linger with me. Some I just love saying. Names of things like: book titles, beer, band names, small towns, mountains, rivers and even store names like this one. 9 Stones? I've heard of lots of standing stones, including Stonehenge. I think they call them 'druids circles'. I hear that groups of nine standing stones exist in Devon, Derbyshire, Dorset and Cornwall and Aberdeenshire in Scotland and Count Carlow in Ireland. Me? I've got about 10 acres around here with PLENTY of rocks. I guess I better make a pile of nine. I want to be a 'lucky' man!
