Produce Stand


Hello, Dear Ones.
Well, I had uploaded these snaps a while back and had saved them in a post.
I know I took these while we were on a trip in Kiki but I can't remember where we were!
I know, I'm getting old.

Anyway, I thought I would share them with you anyway.

We were poodling down the road ~ who knows where ~ and ran across a produce stand so we had to stop. That gorgeous olden truck caught our eye. She's a beaut!
I have to tell you, Kiki gets lots of attention. A man walked up to Mr. Precious and started asking all about her. Not bragging or anything, but I do think she's a pretty thing.
This produce stand was quite something in it's own right.
Cute huh?
It was the height of peach season. I do remember sweet and juicy orbs of peachiness! Yum.
My mouth still waters just looking at them.
I have to admit I did not know what those funny looking gourd/watermelony thingys were.
So, being the shy soul that I am, I asked the little man behind the counter. He told me they were called cushaws ~ a squash. I didn't buy one though.
Such lovely veggies. Look at the gorgeous eggplants.
Cream peas! Oh, how I love these. I bought a mess, cooked them and wanted to eat them all myself but shoot! I had to share with Mr. Precious. Wish I had bought more.
Cool old scale too.
What a pretty produce stand. It was really more than just a stand.
One more glimpse at that lovely olden truck. 
Maybe this is a truck stand? :)


Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

The Remember Song 

I'm looking for my wallet and car keys
....Well they can't have gone too far
Just as soon as I find my glasses
....I'm sure I'll see just where they are.

Supposed to meet someone for lunch today, 
....but I can't remember where.
or who it is that I am meeting 
....it's in my organizer some-where.


I might have left it on the counter,
maybe outside in the car
The last time I remember driving,
 was to that memory enhancement seminar.


What's that far off distant ringing,
 And that strangely familiar tone?
Must be the person I am meeting, 
calling me on my brand new cordless telephone.


I might have left it under the covers, 
maybe outside on the lawn
and I've got just one more ring to go, 
before my answering machine kicks on.

Hi, this is Tom and your call means a lot to me, 
so leave a message at the tone...
and I'll do my best to try to remember
to call you back when I get home

*Beep*

Tom, this is Gwendolyn, 
and I'm trying not to cry.
but I've been waiting here for over an hour, 
I thought you loved me, this is goodbye.
 Well...the voice sounds familiar, 
...,and the name it rings a bell
Let's see now, where was I, 
......Oh well. 
~ sung by Tom Rush

  2. Shelia, I love that truck. Someone gave it a shine. I too ask about veggies I have no idea what they are called. LOL. Those peaches do look delicious. I love some with ice cream. :) Blessings to you, xoxo, Susie

  7. I love that old truck, so pretty and so is the yellow swing. Nothing better than getting real vegetables and fruit. One thing I hate about winter is you cannot drive down to the farmers market and get real food.

  9. I am in love with that produce stand. I would sit on a bench and just people watch. I also like trying new veggies. I would have bought that squash just to try it. Loving the truck also. I hope you remember where it is so you can go back sometime.

  11. Hi Shelia, What a wonderful produce stand to stop and enjoy. It looks like lots of fun and the old truck is a beauty.
    Love the Tom Rush song at the end. My mother had a little saying she used to say when she was trying to remember something. She would say, "I did not forget, I just don't remember" haha I really need to paint her little verse on a sign.
    Happy Fall my friend. Blessings. xoxo

  12. I do believe this is a Yuppie Farmer's Market! A cushaw is often used as a sub for pumpkin, but really just another crookneck squash. Who knew those Yankees could grow watermelon!? I enjoy your travels.
