"The Vegreville Truck"

There are a lot of four-door pickup trucks in my newly adopted town of Vegreville, Alberta. After I noticed there were a lot of them I started taking pictures of them. I'm up to 68 pictures so far -- with a few repeats. The square format makes me include each truck's surroundings. I think that makes for more interesting photos and the format helps describe the town as well.

All the photos are viewable in a Flickr set.

Old Dutch brand potato chip crazy

In Canada (in Vegreville, Alberta anyway), the Old Dutch brand seems stronger than in its native Minnesota. It seems stronger than even Frito-Lay.

I snapped a photo of an end-cap display at my local grocery store -- just look at that variety of potato chip flavors.
The flavors include: Rip-L-Chips, Creamy Dill, Mexican Chili, Ketchup, Sour Cream and Green Onion, All Dressed, Original, Sour Cream and Onion, Au Gratin, Lightly Salted, Cheddar and Sour Cream, Dill Pickle, Salt 'n Vinegar and BBQ. There's also a bacon flavor and another version of BBQ flavor that I missed. Whew!

Not certain what the All Dressed flavor is -- it tastes like a spicy tomato sauce, maybe.
