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.)
