A few years ago they had an "Art Longhorn" competition and show. There are a few of these scattered around the Southlake area...

And now for something completely............. almost the same!

The new TAG is an oversized, BIG, gigantic, animal of any kind! Like a ten foot tall duck, or a 2oo pound frog, or a butterfly with 4 foot wings...


LIKE THIS




So, any animal except a cow! and really BiG!

I stopped here on the way from Adelaide to Melbourne yesterday:



Unfortunately, I wasn't on my bike, I didn't have a camera, and it was about 12 hours too soon anyway!

It's a very cool Koala! Somehow, when I imagined all the giant animals out there, a Koala was never on my list!

They use to have 150 Panda statues around Washington D.C. I think they removed them a few years back.

Unfortunately some of them were vandalized...assholes.

In Glendale, Ohio (in Australian parlance, a suburb of Cincinnati), they have squirrels:

Well, it IS closer than the Glendale squirrels, but its still about a 350 mile round trip. It's about lunchtime if you leave Melbourne at about 8am to arrive in Adelaide about 5pm, and they do good burgers.

You have no idea how bizarre it is to an Aussie that cities as big as Columbus, Indianapolis, Dayton, Louisville, Lexington, Toledo... are all within about 2 hours drive of Cincinnati, while it takes us a full day with minimal stopping to drive from Melbourne to Adelaide or Sydney.

and its even more bizarre for us Kiwis to realise that some cities have a population much much greater than our whole country!

There's not necessarily an upside to that...

I would say there is no likely upside to that.
