Yard Dinosaur of Ola Farwell

This guy is unique, but looks like he's been forgotten. He still had Christmas lights on him in June.

We met this particular dinosaur in 1985, when the home property belonged to Ola Farwell. He'd built Farwell's Dinosaur Park (later named "John Agar's Land of Kong") in nearby Beaver, Arkansas, in 1962. Ola died soon after we met him -- he was nearly 91 at the time -- so we're amazed to see that his personal yard dinosaur survived.
