Goofy Stuff

None of us had ever seen a Coca-Cola can of this size.  I couldn’t resist buying it even though I had two Cokes in the cooler!  It is a commemorative can for the upcoming World Cup.  I did my part to commemorate it by drinking it and taking a couple pics of the can before throwing it away.

I was thinking of mailing it to Beth’s sister, Kris, who is a huge Coke fan, but by the time we arrived in McAllen, it was dented and sort of lost its commemorative fascination.  I suspect I’ll see more of these down here in the next couple months.  If you’re a Coke fan and want one of these really cool cans, let me know and also send me about $50 USD and I’ll be sure to ship it to you…unopened.  That’s $1 for the can and $49 shipping and handling.  LOL  (just kidding…however, I might be willing to help you get one if you’re really a big Coke can collector…skinny Coke can collectors need not apply)  😉

What do you do when you need to leave the dog behind with no one coming to check on her for 2 days?  This should do it.  Peanut is a pretty good sport about our trips.  She can tell when we’re leaving her for a trip…she grumps up on the top step and lies down with her ears folder over and puts on her big puppy dog eyes.  No doubt as soon as we’re gone a few minutes, she perks up and has a great time without us.  She’s a good actress.

(I was going to get some great video shots of the 2 1/2 lane highway passing in northern Mexico but both sets of the rechargeable Kodak batteries I bought in Laredo a few weeks ago have turned out to be duds.  Both sets were dead and all I managed to get from them were four pics, including the three above.  Looking closely at the packaging, Wal-Mart imported the batteries from China via Mexico which probably means they were intended to be dumped in the Mexican retail market which is a dubious market for such products.  Mexico often has worthless junk for sale in the stores here which is why I intentionally bought them in the USA.  Apparently, Laredo, TX is not USA enough.  Bummer.  $22 wasted.  Thanks a lot Wal-Mart.  Had I had the receipt and packaging with me, I would have tried to return/exchange them in McAllen.  Unfortunately, I didn’t have them.)
