Lego fish sticks?

One quick adventure state-side before Jackie and I tackle our top ten list in Italia... My dear dad is a Lego fan and a talented Lego builder. He told me about a Lego statue of the Gorton Fisherman coming to Indianapolis groceries during March. I put the date on my calendar, packed my camera, and tried to imagine just how many Lego bricks it would take to make a Lego fishing boat for the Lego Gorton Fisherman.

When I got to the grocery, there were people in yellow waders passing out coupons and acting surprisingly excited about fish sticks...but no Lego! One of the wader-people told me they "didn't have permission" to use the Lego fisherman that day (was he in the Lego sculpture union?), but that I could have my picture taken with a real life Gorton fisherman. Not nearly as cool as all those yellow bricks, but perhaps also a once in a lifetime experience.

Love you, Dad! Sorry about the lack of Lego!

Have a good time in Italia! Make sure you get some gelato this time. I am guessing you have already left or leave this Thursday b/c Yekki's said that you were arriving on Thursday! Have a good flight and make sure you get that leg room!

Unfortunately, both Corrie and the Fisherman in the picture are Lego-less. Although, a Lego-Corrie could come in quite handy... "Corrie's so dedicated. I thought she was going to Italia, but she's been at her desk, staring at her computer for weeks and weeks now." :-)
