After Lloyd and I left the auction on Saturday, we stopped in a little town called Wahoo. (You might be familiar with the name from Late Night With David Letterman? Top Ten from the home office in Wahoo, Nebraska? Look it up. It’s a real thing.)
We drove around downtown Wahoo, all three streets of it. There was a little Warehouse/Surplus store that used to be an old Ben Franklin store, and as it turned out, they were selling the surplus from the old Ben Franklin store (hairnets and shoe insoles from the 1960’s), and a bunch of warehouse food (bulk spices, bags of that gross filling that goes in blasphemous filled donuts and giant cans of stuff).
Hmmm….. giant cans of stuff……
How could I not buy a giant can of pickled beets?
Tonight I opened the can so beets could be the vegetable matter at dinner, but I had to repackage them so they wouldn’t get moldy. I mean, I can eat beets pretty fast, but I’m not going to rush this. I have until December of 2015.
