    Just wondering if anyone has a giant 'figure' in your neck of the woods..

    We for example have a GIANT CANDLE building close by..that is purple and has a fake flame atop it...

    Always nice to give directions.."when you get to the giant candle turn right...."

    We have "The Big Chicken" in nearby Marietta, Ga. Its now a KFC resturant, the building is shaped like a giant chicken and the beak opens and closes. The eyes used to roll around, I don't know if they still do.

    In the town I deliver in, I give directions by "the stop sign." whne they ask how far to the stop sign, I just tell them to trust me, it's the only one you'll come to.

    Up here in Boston, we have the "Big Frig"....Oh, I mean "Big DIG".
    The new tunnels do make it easier to get around... and around... and around to and from the airport.

    We also have Big Ted... Big Papi... and HAD Big Tuna.

    Big Balls, however, is still in New York City!

    FInally, we have the Big Oak Tree... but they cut it down 85 years ago... but if you're lost you can still, "bear left where the Big Oak Tree Use'ta be"... but only if you know where it was!

    In the center of the town I deliver in, there is a statue. Millions of tourists have their picture taken with this statue. However.......the statue is NOT who they think it is.....

    I can't tell you more because it would compromise my anonymity...
