The Dinosaur In My Bathtub

It all started when Lynn and Tom of Security, Colorado, purchased a cute, 4-inch female iguana. Today, this amazing pet measures 5 feet long.  Although she has developed double rows of razor sharp teeth, long claws, and a 3-foot tail that can be whipped around in defense, the family still considers her their baby, which she was aptly named 21 years ago. Lynn says, "Baby has never used her defense attributes against anyone, and daily loving attention keeps her a docile, fun pet".…See More

Hey Jan ... was searching for photos and stories and came across this (BUT it's from last year!) ... which made me wonder when the Confidence & Leadership Camp is (or was) this year. And did the kids do more snowmen this week if the timing was similar?
What you've sent before was always fabulous ... so what do you have for me now?
just hoping... thanks!

Hey Jan,
Thanks for the photos. Is there a story that goes with them? I didn't see any identification for any people in the photos, either.

I'd love to run these in our Feb. 24 print edition. Give me a call if you want. I'd love to have more on this subject and these people!
