Where Is The Ice Cream Truck

when you want it to show up? The last time it came through our neighborhood it was colder than all get-out, and yet I told Hannah she could get something, but the stupid driver actually sped away as we tried to run it down. Now it's 98 degrees, and Hannah's craving a creamsicle (I know we could buy them in the grocery store, but there's something special about building the childhood memory of visiting the ice cream truck - I did it as a kid and still have fond recollections). On a day like today they'd make a killing! Do they drive through your neighborhood?

There is one in my neighborhood but I suspect he is high and/or drunk all the time. There is a house on our street the goes to nearly every day to smoke pot and drink. So I never get anything from that guy.

That's awful. I wouldn't let my kid within a mile of someone like that!

Not where we are now, but we used to have one come by ant our old shop location. It is special, hearing the music play and knowing the truck is on its way...

 I don't trust the ones that come around the neighborhoods here...they are old beat up vans that make me go 'hmmm'... but then I haven't seen one come into the apartment complex this year.

Nooo, no, nooo! Not the ice cream track please! I live in a small town and that damn track can never move far away from me so I don't hear the same anoying high pitch sound. I am fine it doesn't show up this year at all! I am mean, ha? Buaaahhh!

 We have the Ding-a-Ling truck that is an ice cream/treat mobile and I love it! The lady who drives it, is SO nice and it brings back some nostagia of when I was a kid and would chase after the truck waving my money for it to stop. My kids also LOVE going out to greet her and its just a small home town thing.

They do-well they usually do but haven't this year. Personally I'm not a fan of them-I get the "childhood memories" but to myself (and husband) it's a the perfect job for any perv who is a predator of children.

No thanks-we just get ours from the grocery store.

*shudder* I would never send my daughter after the truck without supervising her.

You're lucky! We don't have ice cream trucks way up here. :(
