My collection, which started out small and simple, continues to grow. These three very large dinosaur statues from Design Toscano arrived on August 23, 2011. Luckily I had some good friends — Bill Blair, Bill Winckler, Tim Smyth, Mark Debennedetti and Sid Terror — who all pitched in with me to move them the both heavy and cumbersome figures into my backyard “Dinosaur Park” before the sun completely set.
And as you can see, these statues make great “photo-ops“! They also attract the producers of documentaries and TV news shows, such as , in 2012, the ABC primetime television series Nightline. … and also of motion picture producers who find my backyard and its dinosaur statues, as well as the inside of the house, an interesting location for a film shoot.
