Ernie Hoffnagle's Place
« on: September 01, 2020, 12:39:06 PM »
Ernie Hoffnagle wasn't sure if it was a rock or a maybe a dinosaur bone in his garden. He called in some experts and now it's all a big mystery.











Here's a link to all the pictures I took while I was building this diorama: https://public.fotki.com/daveinthehat/davetown/ernie-hoffnagles-place/

Very cool!  I believe that is either a Big Foot relative or a future me when I tell my wife - "A little ice on the roof won't prevent me from putting up the Christmas Lights this year."
