World's Largest. . .

We spent the day driving two elders back to their area, but it wasn't
a total waste of time.   Along the way and on the trip back, we spotted
several of Alberta's famous "world's largest" items.  I was so excited.
I've been waiting to see these famous sights for over 18 months.
This is the "world's largest" mallard duck, don't know why. . . 
it just is.  This shows you how big it is compared to the flags.
Quack, Quack, Quack
This fine gentleman is a "world's largest" trapper man.
We had to take pictures from across the street because the museum
was closed for the winter.  We may go back this summer.
This, now this is. . . wait for it. . . 
the "worlds' largest" perogie.
When we were taking the picture, Chris asked what the big
thing through the middle was supposed to be. It's a fork.
 Figure that one out.  Why would you have a giant perogie in your town?
 A perogie is a dumpling type foodfilled with things like potatoes,
 bacon and cheese.  The missionaires love them because they're easy
 and cheap.  You typically boil them and then fry them in a little
 butter.  I haven't actually tried one yet, I guess there's no time like the 
present.  I'll get back to you.
And this "world's largest" hasn't even been seen by the missionaries.
At least they haven't told be about this one.  All the other attractions the 
missionaires have seen and told me about, but not this one.  I think I'm the first.
"World's Largest" mushrooms?  Interesting!
