I have just been notified of a thing.
At the end of August I’m gonna visit Chicago. On the way home I’m stopping in Denver. My brother-in-law, who got me the flight, warned me about the Denver Airport Horse.

In this Flickr photoset, bkobash describes it thus:

You better believe my layover is gonna have some serious photo fun time.
