Pepsi country

I've discovered a new meme. That is probably the last thing the Old Salt wants to hear. He already thinks I neglect him by spending to much time on line. But, I can't resist posting to this one, at least once. The meme is called Odd Shots on Monday.

My photos today may not seem odd, but, I'm fairly certain they are something you will not see very often.

There is a Pepsi bottling plant in the neighboring town. When a large tree came down in a storm last year they seized the chance to turn it into a local landmark by carving it into a giant bottle of pepsi.

While I have not tried to reach around the base of this tree I am certain it is to large for me to do so. I would be guessing if I tried to estimate its height but as you can see by this second shot it is rather tall. This tree carving has certainly made it a lot easier to give strangers to the area directions, you can't miss it.

This giant Pepsi bottle should make it rather clear that I live in Pepsi country. Everyone around here strongly believes in supporting the local employers, so it is rare to find a restaurant that serves anything but Pepsi. Pepsi is also a lot cheaper to buy than other brands here as well. Now, I agree strongly with keeping my money in the local economy but I just can't force myself to drink Pepsi. Give me that coke or pepsi challenge and I will pick the coke every time. Needless to say, I drink a lot of ice tea or water when we eat out.

  1. What a fun thing to have in the neighborhood. Welcome to Odd Shots.


Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
