On the walk to campus Tuesday morning, I carried along the camera, intending to snap up a few digipics of the fresh snow on trees, covered paths and whatnot.  I shot all the ones I wanted, but then, just as I passed onto campus, low and behold a coveted, rarely spotted Syracuse Banana truck rolled up from a side street, mush-braking to a squeaking, slushy halt just in time for me to pass in front (walker's privilege on campus, ordinarily, and a friendly wave from Driver to keep me in motion).  But knowing that I don't see Syracuse Banana trucks often and knowing that I might not have another chance to record the sighting, I yanked the camera from its case and grabbed this image from an over-the-shoulder half-turn.  Click!

Full line of fresh fruits and vegetables, daily delivery to restaurants & institutions.  No, this isn't a one-fruit town, if you ever supposed it was.

I'd spotted it a time or two before, but yeah, the truck is one of the more appealing oddities I've seen on my daily trudge to campus and back.
