But he just seems so perfect, so ready to fit seemlessly into some lucky person's life. Guiness is a 2 to 3 year old rottweiler/hound mix,...

  Speechless Sunday - One of a Kind Jeep   Here's another very interesting sculpture we came across at The Hole In The Rock in Moab, Utah. It almost seems like a prop out of a cartoon as it reminds me a little of Fred Flintstone's car for some reason. The body is made entirely of license plates, ...
