This is in a Lowe’s market in Las Vegas, New Mexico. My brother and his wife and I have stopped off here to buy some lunch to take up to Montezuma, NM, where our grandmother lives.

I love small town grocery stores. They tend to be a nice blend of the perfectly mundane and the perfectly bizarre. Witness, the creepiest, loneliest teddy bear of all time, which I spot in one of those claw-grabber machines:
