Ice cream truck

A couple evenings ago I was working in the yard while watching my 13 month old trying to master what we take for granted in walking, when I hear the familiar sound of an ice cream truck trying to lull small children and child minded adults out to the street for a sugar fix.
I decided it was time to let my son see what this was all about, so grab him and and my wife and I go out to meet the truck and pick out some goodies.
Needles to say, but the price of Ice cream has gone way up since I was a kid. No longer do I search for loose change jingling in my pockets but go straight for the 20 spot.
Well, we go to pay the lady and she tells us thank you for the Christmas lights but this is on the house.

So the next time you think that people come see our displays and then soon forget about them afterwards, think again.
These displays touch a lot more people than you may realize.

The worst part is that Ice Cream trucks now-a-days stink.

I remember being a kid and the Ice Cream man sold real soft-serve. He made floats, shakes, sundaes, dips, etc.

Today's Ice Cream Man sells over-priced ice-cream novelties that have melted and then been re-frozen so many times they are slimy and yucky.

Ice cream truck???? When I was young, you could get a job riding a three wheeled bike like thing with a ice box on front and sell ice cream out of it. Heck, you could make almost five bucks a day if you busted butt!!
