Robot Holding a Rocket

Hokey robot holding hokey rocket by a private residence. The sign on the rocket says, "Soap Lake for Locals-dot-com." Remember, this is on private property -- and from the message it seems like they're not overly fond of tourists, LOL.

Nice robot, but an easily-misunderstood URL. "Soap Lake for Locals" is a website that provides Soap Lake information for residents and welcomes visitors!
