It’s a simple image from Speedy’s – or some name – Stop and Go mart in Victoria, Texas. To get home from the Gulf Coast, I might pass through Victoria. For some reason, it’s not an odd offering, but for some reason, the packaging, the contents, the little bag of dried fruit dusted with pepper, it caught my fancy. Oddities.
Location: Victoria, TX
I was riding back, and we stopped, gas, I think, and the Virgo was insisting on buying a round. Ice tea, diet coke, nothing for me. Still a long road to unspool in front of us, and wandering the aisle, there it was. I snapped a quick shot, as it spoke to me on so many levels, red, for the theme’s color challenge, hot spices, tropical fruit, half-Spanish, half-English, all South Texas.
It’s a different land, and some people just don’t get that.
