Tulsa, Oklahoma: Columbo On Front Lawn

Dead tree is carved into a likeness of rumpled 1970s TV detective by professional sculptor Clayton Coss. On its base is Columbo's catchphrase, "Just one more thing." The homeowner is a private detective who grew up watching the show, which had Peter Falk in the lead role for its ten seasons.

Columbo On Front Lawn

The Columbo sculpture is fun to look at and easy to find. In addition to Columbo, there is a statue of Ben Franklin and a vintage telephone booth in the front yard. I also noticed a sign warning me of guard dogs, but I didn't see or hear anything menacing.
