Saggy Butt Lava Man and His Trusted Saber Tooth Lava Tiger Playing Ball

Yeah, that’s pretty much what I see in this lava flow.  How about you?

Our transfer station (the dump) re-opened a couple of days ago after having a great deal of lava scraped off of the ground to allow for the placement of cargo containers that hold recyclables and trash.  All of our trash gets shipped off to a landfill on the mainland by barge.  Where else can you put it?  What’s that?  Conveyer belt to Kilauea?  Yeah, it’s actually been brought up before by people.  They are still looking for those folks.

Anyway, you can see all sorts of ‘things’ in the lava that flowed into the transfer station and this formation really caught my eye.  On the left is Saggy Butt Lava Man and to his right is his trusted Saber Tooth Lava Tiger holding a lava ball in his mouth.

Maybe I’ve been breathing sulfur dioxide too long.  Is it just me or do you see it as well?
