A Crazy White Man

Amy, her friend Patricia and I went to Natural Bridge Virginia to see some sights in the area. First we went to the Pink Cadillac Café. It came complete with a Pink Cadillac outside,

a King Kong holding an airplane

and Humpty Dumpty.

The inside was just as classy.

We then drove down to Foamhenge. Foamhenge is just like Stonehenge, except it’s made out of Styrofoam, took a lot less time to complete and only required the labor of “4-5 Mexicans and one crazy white man” to get done. Advantage: Foamhenge.

Unlike Stonehenge you could walk around the area. Advantage: Foamhenge.

The Crazy White Man also posited the theory that Merlin anachronistically created Stonehenge using magic and included a fiberglass replica of him. Yet again, Advantage: Foamhenge.

We then went to the Crazy White Man’s other creation: Dinoland.

Don’t let the name fool you, there’s much more than fiberglass dinosaurs in the area.

There’s a story told about some family who found the dinosaurs with their pet monkey Blinky, but so had the North during the Civil War and were going to use the animals as weapons of mass destruction against the south.

Also included (of course) is a cow with a deer on his back with a rabbit on his head with a mouse on his head, surrounded by dinosaurs.

We then went to the actual Natural Bridge. Thomas Jefferson bought it as a tourist place and George Washington surveyed it.

It's a little bit of a drive from DC (about 3 hours) but definitely worth it for a day trip.

Wow. I am almost speechless. I guess my favorite part is the cow/deer/rabbit/mouse.
So when you grew your beard, did the patch get jealous?

There were some jealousies; but they learned to coexist.
