    George regrets asking Mabel for a sink plunger before her morning coffee.

    Cool thing happened this evening. Saw an old fashioned ice cream truck come through our neighborhood. Lived here 13 years and never saw one before. The music it was playing was LaBamba.
    Saw kids running up to it for a purchase.


    I, however, would like a margarita, Fenton. Thanks.

    BTW, the video is pretty cute.

    I like Mabel. She’s obviously a southpaw.

    Time flies like an arrow….
    fruit flies like a banana


    Mabel likes a good dart….
    George darts past the doorway….
    See how time flies?

    I didn’t say it made any sense, did I?


    Well, it made the little monkeys giggle.


    But almost anything makes the little monkeys giggle.
    Right guys?


    Right now they’re all excited anyway,
    cos Big Monkey came in on their shift.

    Until this last long cold winter, we always had TWO ice cream trucks
    and two Ice cream carts come through our tiny neighborhood from spring through autumn…

    …not all four every single day. but most of them most days.


    But though it finally did get warm,
    I haven’t seen the trucks or heard their music since last year.


    One played the tune I always associate with ice cream….


    …..and the other, what I finally realised was tinny version of “The Entertainer”…
    the theme from “The Sting”


    BTW…. One of the carts is a sort of bicycle … looks a lot like this one:



    But this one is smaller, and has upright sticks in the corners from which hang big clear plastic bags of durritos, fried wheels of transparent wheat flour, into which the vendor will pour some bottled hot sauce and lime juice when sold, if desired.


    He honks a little horn as he passes.


    The other is a small handcart…. pushed by a tiny, rather elderly man, on foot.
    I see him all over town.

    Mabel should use the same type of strategy as in today’s Close to Home strip.
