Roy's Postcards: 1983/06/25
(LEONARD) Daddy, Susanna and I went to the Natural History Museum and we saw a live brontosaurus and stegosaurus. I didn't like them because they were real. They made scary noises.
Thirty foot long Trachodon, a duckbilled dinosaur, had some 2,000 overlapping teeth for grinding plants and other vegetable matter. Its heavy flat tail and webbed feet made it an excellent swimmer.
Perhaps the greatest conceptual gulf between me-as-a-child and me-as-an-adult is "I didn't like them because they were real."
Nice postcard art here.
