Wiener Mobil

After work I stopped by the market and was excited to see the wiener mobile! I even got a whistle and had a stranger take my picture. I suppose I was so happy because it brought back fond memories. When I was a little girl it came to one of our local strip malls and we got to go inside. I think there was a little person dressed in a chefs outfit also .... or maybe I dreamt it. Who knows.

This is my journal page from the current event.
