You Never Know What You Will See!

Continuing to share unexpected things that we see…

We went to the grocery store the other day for a few things.  It is always interesting to see what is stocked on their shelves or in their cold cases.  A few times we have found Jimmy Dean’s frozen sausage patties – a real treasure!  Every stop at the store now includes a search for the elusive package of Jimmy Dean’s frozen sausage patties.  Today we did find pork, but it wasn’t the exact thing we were looking for…  Yep, that is a whole pig in there – trotters and all!  (trotters = feet)


While searching the frozen food box I came across this little jewel, or should I say this box of fungus…  I guess it would help if you are Italian.


And then there was this… I think it is time that someone produced a show teaching the world how to make real, TexMex tacos.  Just say ’n!


You never know what you will see!

You Just Never Know What You Will See!

To say that travel in Monrovia is an adventure is quite the understatement!  Traffic, potholes – some the size of a small car, no road at all, 2 lanes that are turned into 6, 7 or even 8 lanes of traffic, people everywhere, hawkers selling their products while playing frogger in the traffic, and… well, surely you get the picture.  Or maybe you don’t.

How about this one…  FullSizeRender

Yes, that is a coffin in that small car!  Someone is being taken to their final resting place – no ropes, no tie-downs – just sitting there, hanging out.

If you think I was surprised to see this, you are mistaken.  The first time I saw a car with a coffin in it I was surprised.  Not any longer – I have sort of grown accustomed to the site.  In town, up country, on the highway, in the bush – I have seen this many times.

You just never know what you will see!
