Fun Fridays

Starting today, I'd like to post something fun and lighthearted each Friday that we can comment on and learn new things about each other.

I LOL'd when I found out this would be rolling into town today:


The Famous Idaho Potato Truck will make a stop at a Tampa restaurant today, one of only four restaurants, a school and a hospital in the nation to be part of an exclusive Idaho Potato Commission ad campaign.
The truck is 72 feet long, 12 feet wide and holds a 6 ton potato.
The potato is so huge it would take 10,000 years to grow; 2 years, 9 months to bake; and would make over 30,000 servings of mashed potatoes or 1.5 million French fries.
The truck travels the country spreading the word of Idaho potatoes and raising awareness and money for Meals on Wheels.

I think I'll go by and check it out!

Do you have an unusual landmark of some sort in your home town? Or, like above, an oddity that was "just passing through?" Please post below and let's make it a Fun Friday.

  3. I'd hate to be in charge of peeling that potato! Love their mission to raise awareness for Meals on Wheels. Hopefully they will make it our way--I'd love to see it in person.
