Call it a happy ending to a fish-out-of-water story.
Today, a one-of-a-kind, fiberglass shark cast from the same mold as the iconic, mechanical sharks used in the 1975 classic movie, Jaws, is leaving home.
After more than 25 years keeping watch over Aadlen Brothers Auto Wrecking, a junkyard in Sun Valley, Calif., the shark known as Bruce is headed to a museum.
This matters to me. Because the shark and I have a past.
Like many people, I used to be afraid to go in the ocean because of Jaws.
