Happened upon this statue on the River Walk. Lots of tourists, myself included!, were queued up for a picture. Younger folks may not remember the TV show, but The Fonz was certainly a favorite of me and my sister back in the day.

This statue is absolutely creepy when you get up close to it. Bronze teeth makes Fonz look like a Halloween character. However, our grandchildren loved it and spent a long time climbing on him and laughing, even though they didn't know who he was. It...More
