you doing?? Summer weather is finally here - WooHoo!!!
Now that it's nice out, what are your plans for the
summer? Any fun road-trips?
know I'm on the road a lot with my job, and one quirky
thing that I've noticed on my travels is that a lot
of towns have "The World's Largest...(fill in the
blank)". For example, last week we were driving
between Saskatoon and Regina for the Sunwing shows
and we stopped in Davidson where we noticed their
random giant coffee pot and mug.
Vegreville has the world's largest Psyanka (Easter
Egg), Moose Jaw has the giant Moose (makes sense),
somewhere in Northern Alberta I remember seeing the
world's largest perogy (on a fork), Kitimat has a huge
snowflake, and we can't forget the World's largest
Pinto Bean between Medicine Hat and Lethbridge. Even
the town we live in, New Westminster, BC (suburb of
Vancouver) has the World's Largest Tin Soldier.
I'm not really sure what
the significance of the tin soldier is.
remember the episode of Corner Gas when they wanted
to build the
big dirty hoe in Dog River to increase tourism? :)
you have The World's Largest Anything in your town??
Anywho, have a great month and chat with you soon.
