Day 208: Corner View "Vending Machines."

This post is part cheat, since I took this vending machine photo at the beginning of March!  But I didn't see any machines today, and this one was very cool.  I wish I had a better shot of it--this one is a bit tight.  But anyway--it's a neat, old-fashioned machine.  If I drank coke, I would have loved to get one from this machine.  But since I don't, I just took home a photo instead:

For today, though, here's a photo of Adam at Julia's soccer practice.  They both LOVE soccer--he can hardly wait to be old enough to play on a team himself.  When we got to the field, he asked me if I'd be on his team, and was tickled when I said of course I would!  He loves kicking the ball around--and does a pretty good job controlling it, too.  But this picture is of him watching Julia practice with her team.


Now grab a couple of quarters and check out other vending machines with Jane at Spain Daily.

fantastic and cool old school :)
(the principle is the same, but at least, the style was wonderful.)

thanks for showing this, I didn't know they were still commonplace and being used.

Thanks, guys! This machine was at the deli that I posted about at the beginning of March. I just didn't post the machine. I'm not sure about them being common place, La Ninja, because this is the only one I've seen lately, but I remember the little country general store we'd go to when I was a kid, and the vending machine was similar to this, with the bottle opener on the side. There was something kind of fun about sticking the bottle in the slot and wrenching off the top!
