A Great Start To A Weekend In New York

After we delivered at JFK yesterday, I heard a familiar sound.

The music of the Mister Softee truck!! I haven't had ice cream from Mister Softee since I was probably five years old. After we moved out of the Bronx, up to the country where we had one neighbor, there was no ice cream truck playing music down our street.

As the truck drove past our truck, I gave the driver a quick wave and a toot of the air horn. I thought he didn't hear me until I saw the truck circle back around and stop right in front of us. Obviously we weren't the only fans, as you can see Ed talking to two other drivers as they wait in line for their creamy ice cream goodies.

What a great memory!

A real ice cream truck! All we get is some guy in a pickup truck with a glorified ice chest in the back with dry ice and bad treats!

I can remember when we moved to the country and no more ice cream truck. It was probably as tragic as moving away from our playmates!
