#44 - Idaho Potato Museum.jpgSparky took a trip Idaho and visited Idaho Potato Museum “The Potato Capital of the World”. Fun fact the world’s largest potato chip crisp was produced by the Pringles Company in Jackson, TN, in 1990. It measures 23”x 14.5” and is being displayed at the museum. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the largest potato grown was 7 pounds 1 ounce by J. East and J. Busby of Great Britain.


Sparky turned 65 on March 18, 2016, and we have been pulling out all the stops to help him celebrate! He’s created a bucket list of 65 activities and events he’d like to accomplish between his birthday and October. As he checks them off his list, we’ll make sure to share them with you. Some of Sparky’s wishes are pretty lofty, while others are just fun or a bit silly. Check in weekly to see where he goes and what he’s up to!
