Platypus gift

Ken with Platypus

The first photo today shows me holding a wonderful gift that arrived this week. It’s a platypus, of course—an incredibly designed creature from my native land of Australia. It was handcrafted from wood by Mr. LaVerne Anderson of Des Moines, Iowa, a long-time friend of AiG and a museum charter member in fact, every few months, he makes the 550-mile drive (one way) to check on the museum’s progress here in Northern Kentucky.

One of his hobbies is wood-working. He also made a wooden platypus for our CCO, Mark Looy (who also happens to be an Aussie). Thanks, LaVerne. As I often say, the platypus is my favorite animal. I sometimes say that I think every time an evolutionist looks at the platypus, I think God smiles! Think about it: it has a bill like a duck, a beaver-like tail, webbed feet like an otter, hair like a bear, claws like a reptile, lays eggs like a turtle, and has poison like a snake! But, it’s designed to do what it does do and what it does do it does do well—doesn’t it, don’t you think, I think it does, do you? I do, hope you do, too, do you?
