    Should the anti Florida camel stay



    They added the top rock today, the rock originally looked like the United States, liked it allot on the ground, however after they added it to the top to act as a safety rail, it began to look like an upside Florida. Out there just now and with a few well placed pieces of dirt, bite the only thing I can see if a camel. My wife wants the head taking off due to the fact it really draws attention away from everything. I agree, but I kind of like the anti Florida camel, which now that it has a name makes it even better. Should it stay or should it be beheaded, let me know.IMG_20150924_182632912.jpgIMG_20150924_183523063.jpg

    It could be a dinosaur or better yet a dragon. Think you could pipe in some gas so he can breathe fire! It does make for a good Conversation piece. But seriously I don't think I would want his to stay either. And least not permanently.

    Maybe have them cut it off, then I can bore a hole in either piece, and when we want to bring out the Camel, we just put a little rod and reconnect them.

    Good idea! I think you might have some rebar(steel) leftover from the pool!

    It has to stay now that it has a name but if it must go maybe you can leave as much of the neck attached to the head as possible and find a home for it in a different part of the yard as if it is about to emerge from the ground.

    This was my thought too. It looks like Dino from Fred Flintstone.

    Re: Should the anti Florida camel stay

    Anti Florida, just because originally the stone looked like the USA, when they put it in the Florida part was upside down. When the American flag is upside down it is usually referring to anti America, same with the cross. So I assume an upside Florida would be anti Florida. The idea of chopping his head off but saving it sounds more appealing
