I have driven by this dragon soooo many times, located outside my hometown in NE Kansas, USA. I finally decided to get some pictures of him while he still showed his natural flair for life.
Created using bits and pieces from farm machinery and old piping, he’s eaten mail for at least 15 years that I know of.

    Carla, This is SO COOL!!! I have to smile at the creativity here :-) Lot’s of luck with your new group! (Got your new computer?)

  • Still the old stinky computer…but it’s CLEANED now (they found a cat’s-worth of hair in it)…
    Isn’t this just awesome? I don’t even know who’s place it is as he’s on the other side of a hwy out in the country and it’s a dirt road that goes on endlessly the other direction
