How do you turn a dinosaur into a horse?

Use an internal combustion engine.

So on my way into work today I found myself pondering, ‘What do you call a dinosaur car accident?’

A tyrannosaurus wreck!

So I’ve decided to go really old school this week and tell dinosaur jokes.

Three dinosaurs are running across the desert when they stumble upon a magic lamp. They rub it, and a genie appears.

“I have three wishes, so I’ll give one to each of you,” the genie announces.

The first dinosaur thinks hard. “Alright,” he says, “I’ll have a big, juicy, piece of meat.”

Instantly, the biggest, juiciest piece of meat he’d ever seen appears in front of him.

Not to be outdone, the second dinosaur thinks even harder. “I know! I’ll have a shower of meat!”

Immediately, huge pieces of meat rain down around him.

The third dinosaur, certainly not to be outdone, thinks harder than the previous dinosaurs. “I’ve got it!” he cries, “I want a MEATIER shower!”

I know I enjoy dinosaurs more then the next man-child, so I asked Shannon, “Do you think I reference dinosaurs too much when I write?”.

She was silent, like the p in pterodactyl, but it said everything.

So we’ve been having lots of fun with our 3D printer making dinosaurs and dragons. Feel free to pop in and purchase (or order) one with style and colors you’re interested in. Also, we’re going to try and have a free 3D class and meet-up on Saturday, October 7th at 1PM. If you’re a novice or just getting started with 3D printing, we’ll have some pointers. If you’re more advanced, maybe we can exchange pro-tips and show each other what we’ve been working on.

I remember the last time I was at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History, I was there admiring some dinosaur fossils and I saw a security guard nearby. “Do you know old these fossils are?”

The guard replied, “They are 73 million, four years, and six months old.”

I looked at the guard and said, “That is oddly specific.”

“Well, when I was hired, I was told they were 73 million years old and I’ve been here four and a half years…”

So to segue into my next topic, I tried to do an internet search for dinosaurs and flu. My first several hits were all promoting the flu vaccine for seniors. I figure that’s as good as it’s going to get. We are going to have a flu vaccine clinic on Saturday, September 30th for people of all ages. Be sure to bring your insurance cards and we’ll get you taken care of. The flu vaccine takes two weeks to become fully effective and then slowly becomes less effective with each passing month, so the end of September and early October is really the ideal time to get your flu shot.

I should probably mention what else we have coming up in the not too distant future:

  • Friday, September 22nd, 6:30ish – 9ish, Board Game Night ~ This has long been a tradition to come in on a Friday and have fun playing games.
  • Saturday, September 23rd, 1PM – 3PM, Tech Help ~ We are a handful of tech heads that like technology and would like to help you with your stuff. We can help with cell phone, tablet, and computer problems/questions. We can talk with you about the latest tech like streaming TV, home security, cyber security, etc. This is all done for free, you just need to come in and ask for help.
  • Saturday, September 23rd, 7PM – 8:30PM, Bereans Group ~ This group, which is open to the public, is discussing ‘God in the work place’. By the way, If Jesus Christ was a dinosaur … he’d be Tyrannosaurus Resurrex!
  • Tuesday, September 26th, 7PM – 8:30PM, Bible Study ~ We are studying the Book of Exodus. This group is open to the public, so feel free to join us.
  • Saturday, September 30th, 12 noon – 4PM, Flu Clinic ~ Bring your insurance cards and we’ll get your flu shot.
  • Saturday, October 7th, 1PM – 3PM, Tech Help: 3D Edition, We will still have volunteers to help you with various tech needs; however, we will have some additional info for those interested in 3D printing ranging from the basics for getting started all the way up to offering and exchanging pro-tips.
  • Wednesday, October 18th, 5PM – 7PM, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny ~ I suggested that this movie should have been titled Indiana Bones and the Fight against Osteoporosis, but no one listened to me. This fifth installment of the Indiana Jones series is a great way to complete this saga. Join us as we cheer on our favorite fictional archeologist.

As we’ve recently started selling board games at Lost and Found, I decided to highlight a fun competitive game for people of all ages Small World.

In Small World, players vie for conquest and control of a world that is simply too small to accommodate them all. Small World is inhabited by a zany cast of characters such as dwarves, wizards, amazons, giants, orcs, and even humans, who use their troops to occupy territory and conquer adjacent lands in order to push the other races off the face of the earth.

Now for the part everyone always asks about, the actual food! Our soup is our very popular chicken tortilla soup and our sandwich is our delicious kielbassa! Our specialty ice creams are Blueberry Cheesecake and Moose Tracks.

Thanks and God bless,
