Maybe Brett Favre singlehandedly won WWII? (The Found Alphabet)
I'm putting two letters in here for one reason: I wanted the G but needed to get the F first.
Both these letters come from Lambeau Field in Green Bay. Two weeks ago, on this year's vacation, we used the first day to take Middle up to get oriented (note: not orientated. At an orientation one gets oriented) at UW-Oshkosh.
While Sweetie drew the short straw of sitting through seminars and lectures, The Boy and I had Babies! and opted to drive 45 minutes further north to visit the former stadium home of Brett Favre. Once there, though, we didn't know what to do. We didn't feel like going through the "Packer Hall of Fame," because neither of us much cares about what the Packers were doing in 1959 or 1812 or whatever. I didn't want to go on the tour because I didn't want to take the 2-year-olds with us but The Boy didn't want to go alone. We didn't feel like shopping for Packer gear -- that's not exactly in short supply in Wisconsin.
So we took some pictures in front of the Vince Lombardi statue and let the Babies! run around in the lobby while we looked around, and then headed off to get some candy at the mall.
In between, I saw the G and wanted to use it for the Found Alphabet, but needed the F, so I decided on a two-fer. The "F" is from the "Lambeau Field" printing on the front. The "G" is on the floor of the lobby -- in this case, on the floor of the lobby right next to where the Packers had set, for some reason, a display of copies various important documents in history, ranging from JFK's inaugural address to Japan's surrender after World War II.
No, I don't know what that has to do with football, either. Maybe they explained it in the Hall of Fame.
