    The horses, goats and sheep all look delicious in these pictures. I like the paper mache model of a particular species of reptilian, despite its relatively minor morphological inaccuracies. I actually had a full corpse of one of these that I brought back from a dirt biking trip in the Nevada desert, but i didn’t preserve it right, and because of the stench I tossed it into my compost heap.

      Murat, appears that you just gave a statement of admitted wanton waste. The crime of wanton waste is a misdemeanor in Nevada (NRS 503.050…among others). STOP POACHING REMAIN ANONYMOUS COLLECT REWARDS CALL 1-800-992-3030.

      • Murat August 10, 2012 at 9:37 am

        Considering the body was that of a reptilian humanoid, I don’t think the law applies. Plus I tend to disregard such laws, so I couldn’t care less.

        • Dghws August 10, 2012 at 9:19 pm

          Your admitted concern for most things is underwhelming. Hope your get haven’t learned from your fine example.

    Wow, that seed mosaic is amazing. Looks like a fun time, thanks for the pics Joyce!

    Did anyone get video or photos on that DAnce Troupe called Dance Fuzion.They were awesome and entertaining. I want to enroll my kids in that class.
