Potato Couple

So I was leaving TX on my way to MO via AR. I was taking secondary roads and was just about to enter Kountze TX when I spotted this couple on the side of the road holding a sign that read "FRESH POTATOES". They were soooooo very cute I did a U-turn with trailer in tow right in the middle of the road and parked on the shoulder. They looked at me like I was crazy. I looked at the little red potatoes they were selling and ask how much. They said 30 cents a pound unless I wanted a bushel. Then it was less. I bought 2 pounds for 60 cents. They should be great for breakfast sliced up and fried with a big ole cut up Bermuda or Vidalia onion.
Yum can't wait.
I ask them if they knew what facebook was. They didn't. I ask if they were familiar with the Internet. They had heard of it.  I ask if I could take their photo and put it on facebook and the Internet. They thought that would be OK. So here is my cute little potato couple.

  1. Judy - how good were those spuds? Connie and I are getting so close to leaving for Canada and beyond. We are so excited that we can hardly stand it. Connie keeps threatening a heart attack if she gets any more excited. Have fun and we'll keep checking on ya'
