Neighborhood Ice Cream Truck - Do You Still Have One?

Started 1331765600.83 in Viewpoints | Last reply 1331923091.25 by luvvy

I'm sitting here typing on my computer in my library/study and I hear the song coming from the old familiar neighborhood "ICE CREAM TRUCK".....do you still have them in your neighborhood? Do you remember them when you were younger and how much we longed for the sound coming down the street? We'd yell at the top of our lungs for mom or dad to give us MONEY to buy an ice cream cone. "Hurry, Hurry".... Oh, the good old days. {#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

I love to laugh and dance......

The driver would probably consider themself lost if they made it to my street.

We had them for years and then they stopped. They started back again about a couple of years ago. The kids in the neighborhood run up to the truck, just like we used to do.

Yes, he has been through twice today and will come back around 8:00 tonight. Sometime I just want to stop him and check prices. Especially with the gas going up again today I am sure his prices are high for a good 'ol bomb pop.

It comes around behind our subdivison, we live in a gated community and it doesn't come by our house.{#emotions_dlg.sad}

Nope...this neighborhood does not have ice cream trucks driving around.

Yes, we do, and I live in a tiny sub-division. I don't know how it makes a profit.

There was a birthday party at a neighbor's and the truck came with a treat for a group of delighted three-year-olds on Sunday. I hear it in the distance on summer days, a nice reminder of childhood.

Well, croemer....you can still hear the sound, right? Then all you have to do is pretend, run down to your freezer and grab a BUCKET! {#emotions_dlg.thumbup}

We don't have ice cream trucks in the sticks {#emotions_dlg.sad}

The difference between a Republican and a Democrat is the Democrat is a cannibal they have to live off each other, while the Republicans, why, they live off the Democrats.
