Today we had to make a shopping trip to our local Wal-Mart 35 miles away. This meant that we did not have time to do our Schleich T-Rex page although we did get all the pictures chosen. It will be a big picture-page as this turned out to be a very photogenic figure. Or it may be that I just got excited about it being a nice enough day to get back outside....
(below- our T-Rex pair begin with the worst pick-up line of the Cretaceous Period)
"We hear that you little guys are as tasty as you are good looking."
"My, what big teeth you have...."
"We don't need your lunch money since you are the lunch."
We'll see a lot more of their adventures and find out their other secrets to meeting local fauna on our upcoming page....
Meanwhile our little shopping trip saw Rexford just trying to blend in....
"I heard that you should look like what you want to eat."
I think that Rex's camouflage worked as he made a "kill" right away.
"It's mine, I caught it!!"
(Left)"...and your little dog, too..."
Yes, Rexford had quite a day and raised a bit of a ruckus but, as always, he got lots of smiles and a generally positive reaction from every one he met (and didn't try to eat).

A Wal-Mart Saga Continues: 2/27/2010
We will be doing our next figure page on the 2004 Safari/Carnegie CollectionAnkylosaurus. An archetypal armored Dinosaur that stood five and a half feet tall, was five feet wide, thirty feet long and weighed ~six tons. Its tail ended in a heavy bone club that could be swung with enough force to break the leg(s) or crush the ribs of any potential predator. A definite force to be reckoned with and nobody's Cretaceous crunchy. When left alone they were peaceful vegetarian types who liked long walks in the moonlight and a nice Merlot with their salads.
"This is a good salad. Please pass the Merlot."
On the other hand Rexford eats whoever is at hand, hates veggies and doesn't even bother to remove the cork when he chugs down his Thunderbird. To each his own....
"I've always wondered why you people cook your food. But that grill would serve as a cage for my food. Wrap it up!"
"Hey look! Frozen Lures!"
"A bedding and eating department, all in one. Heaven!"
"No need to wrap it. I'll eat it here."

A Cautionary: 2/28/2010
Rexford was back at Sam's, picking up a snack (Left)...
"The food's okay; but that little plastic spoon!?! Who needs it? Civilization is stupid...."
...and visiting his "couch-potato" cousin "Monty". Monty lives there and Rexford hopes to whip him into shape.
