Where have all the dinos gone, long time passing….

I had lunch with a friend from out of town at the Green Mill on Grand, and as I was scooting along Grand Ave back to work, I saw a flatbed truck, loaded up with the painted dinosaurs that have been all around town for the past couple of months. So it looks like Extinction City for our fine fiberglass friends, after one last hurrah at the State Fair this weekend. They go on auction on 9 September with the proceeds benefiting the Science Museum of Minnesota.

I’m a little burnt out on all the fiberglass statues from the past couple of years, but at least this one is for a good cause. I just hope that all the ones bought on auction end up in people’s backyards.

    I read “dingos” and read the whole thing with an Australian accent in my head. I couldn’t stop it. Of course, it wasn’t a very good one.

    Anyhow, I’m okay with the dinosaurs going away.

    Maybe had there been some eating of babies….

    I’m glad they’re gone. It was a huge rip-off of Aurora, Illinois’ exact same promotion. LAME!
