Ride ’em, Cowboy!

Joshua Chachques, 9, wrestles a chilly tyrannosaurus rex in Scalzi Park.

Joshua was the only soul braving the cold for some playground fun this afternoon. He sees no reason more people aren’t out, “It doesn’t matter about temperature, you just gotta ignore it.” But he did add that he prefers more kids coming out so for that reason the warmer weather has some appeal. He wouldn’t disclose where he picked up his lassooing techniques but clearly all the time alone with this rex has helped him there.
