Pull into the parking lot of Don's Hot Rod Shop at 2811 N. Stone Ave. Introduce your children to Tall Paul, the 20-foot-tall, bearded behemoth, aka Glenn Stone. Admire how he shines, this newly renovated Logger Prince of Tucson, with his flap-front jeans a dark blue, and with him finally reunited with his faithful sidekick, Axe Boy. Explain to them that he's the reason Tucson is in a desert, because the forests of Southern Arizona were all chopped into small, fireplace-ready logs by his surgically precise, razor-sharp swings. Then tell them that if they don't put away their dang toys and pick up their stinky socks, like you've told them a thousand times, Tall Paul will come for you.
