SKETCHBOOK - "Dino Convention "

It may not seem like the most "St. Patty-ish" thing to do today, but I went to the Overland Park Convention Center to see the "Discover Dinosaurs" exhibit. I suppose if there HAD been dinos in Ireland when St. Patrick was alive, he probably would have chased them out like he did the snakes. The displays were a mixture of well-crafted animatronic, moving dinos...and then some really cheesy, badly designed sculptures. The noise levels were so over-the-top-loud, that my ears are still ringing an hour later...speakers booming the fierce growls of the dinos, and children screaming from delight (or terror). Nightmares for some of them tonight, guaranteed.
