La Gallerie Du Shlock Grande!

This all started when Judith and Dave Hayman and I drove all the way to Winnipeg, MB in Canada from Ann Arbor Michigan. For adventure and excitement we decided to drive through the Upper Pennisula of Michigan, a land noted for gorgeous scenery, pasties, and... not much else. But we noted that there were lots of hotels with mini-golf and lots and lots of giant statues of dubious taste. Since I have a weird sense of humor I decided it would be fun to collect pictures of these objects d'art. Since my friends are as strange as I am, they helped! So we now proudly introduce you to the Hayman/Wessels Gallerie Du Shlock Grande! Please feel free to send your favorite picture for inclusion.
