That's right - a nine foot long dinosaur! For free! (And seriously..how cool is this teacher that she let her kids make this?)
I jumped into action. The first order of business was getting the Mister to say that I could have him for the patio. And he did! - but the only stipulation was that I needed to find someone to haul him home. Oh, the agony of driving a tiny compact car! I zapped off a few hectic texts and emails to friends begging, "Do you know ANYONE who can help me move a nine foot dinosaur??" but as you'd expect, got no takers.
And then, someone else got the dinosaur before I could. Sigh...
I could just picture myself in a pickup truck with my new friend, the dinosaur perched precariously in the back on his way to his new home at the ranch. And the cute eyes that I was going to paint on him. And the natty vest.
I'll have to hand it the award as the best "free" ad that I've seen on Craigslist in a while though!
And maybe I can talk the Mister into building our own dinosaur in the Fall when it gets cooler. I'll add it to the list.
Until next time,
x's and o's,
