Where The Heck is it? September, 2016
Fully realizing it was against the law to take antiquities out of Egypt, Wallace Fenderhook and his beautiful wife, Poinsettia, lusted after an Egyptian statue for their poolside patio. After subtle inquiries, they found an anonymous dealer who promised to locate a large statue for them.
On their way home, the Fenderhooks stopped at a roadside site to collect the statue, only to discover that it was one manufactured by the Egyptian version of IKEA, and was a bewildering array of loose parts and oddly shaped metal pins…and an Allen Wrench. Frustrated, feeling cheated and dismayed, they left without their prize.
Just out of curiosity…do you know…
What pharaoh is represented by this statue?
Where does it lie?
Bring your answers to the August meeting and if you have the right information, you might win prizes!
