Just a quick note to say I love the new sculpture going up in Cape Paterson opposite the Cape Tavern. But there’s some dissent.

My wife, who is an environmentalist and a designer, was a bit worried about it because she thought nothing could improve on nature. However, when I pointed out that it looked a lot like Fred Flintstone had just finished a side order of Dino-Ribs, well, she said she “felt a lot better about it”.

On mentioning the idea at the front bar of the Cape Tavern, the idea was universally approved, my friend “Peter the Dutchman” suggesting the Tavern could be the new meeting venue for the Leopard Lodge or the Loyal Order of the Water Buffalo.

As a result, I’d like to officially declare this sculpture the ‘Yabba Dabba Doo!’. Can we have a public campaign to support the baptism of the sculpture as the ‘Yabba Dabba Doo’ in Cape? The Dinosaur Trail will surely benefit.
