I've become a "poodle detective!" Recently at AiG, unknown to me, one of the museum staff used photographs of the various speakers to produce life-size cutouts. These are used around the museum area for special tour days (like the Behind the Scenes programs) to promote some of our favorite resources.
When I was in the museum this week, I noticed someone had added something to my cutout! It looks real---but I'm glad it's not! What would I do with a degenerate mutant poodle anyway?!
It is well-known that I talk about poodles as part of my lecture on natural selection to make it entertaining. I must admit, it is true that I explain there would be no poodles if there was no sin!
As a result of this part of my lecture, people have been sending me various sizes and colors of toy poodles which I have begun using to decorate the bookcases in my office!
I suspect that a staff member is responsible for the addition to my cutout---so I've become a "poodle detective" to see if I can find out who carried out this creative idea!
It is good that as a staff we can have those times of fun together---and staff know I have a good (though warped, some would say) sense of humor to enjoy such things.
As I didn't do much today (for a change) except---yes, mow the lawn again, take my wife out to lunch, and drop into the office for a few minutes---I thought you would enjoy the story about the poodles.
Tomorrow (Thursday) is a big day: a special guest at our morning chapel, a TV interview with a 60 Minutes-type program from France, an interview with FOX 19 (the local FOX channel), and videotaping segments to be used in the Creation Museum exhibits. Friday, Mally and I take off for speaking engagements in Tennessee, California and Kansas. Find out more about the next week's meetings I'm involved in from our events calendar on the AiG website.
