    Do kids their age have money in their pockets to buy icecream without their parents’ permission?

    Who’d a thunk it?

    I think we’d had this discussion on one of these comics not too long ago. But I haven’t seen one of those in 40 years. Though some folks said they still go through their neighborhoods.

    I recently saw an ice cream truck going through my office park – no businessmen running out to meet it though.

    We still have an ice cream truck that comes around in the summer, but we do live in a nice residential-type neighborhood with a lot of kids

    The ice cream man comes through our neighborhood year round! I guess if the kids keep him in business, why stop just because its February? Weird though…. :)

    We have them here in Lincolnton, NC. My wife and mother-in-law are worse than the kids. I love it.

    That is sad, isn’t it. No one is allowed to be, even a little, carefree.

    I keep calling Willie “Snoopy”.

    We have 3 or 4 that come around every day, year round. Instead of music, one makes a noise like a submarine in distress, another rings a school bell. Both are very annoying. Then there is the one that plays a typical ice cream truck tune but is interspersed with a strange childlike voice saying “Hello”. And they keep running until about 8:30 at night. They all look like converted camper vans. They still attract kids like a Pied Piper.

    i can remember a children’s book where the girls had to do a dance dressed like rats or mice and one of the girl’s masks kept slipping. does this ring a bell for anyone (not an ice cream truck one).? Unfortunately, it wasn’t the whole plot and googling it doesn’t work, especially for a book from about 45 years ago.

    I drove an ice cream truck one summer between college semesters. Not totally unenjoyable. Decent money for a college kid. A lot of kids would buy chunks of dry ice from me to mess around with.

    We still get them here, and because of it, I now (bleep)ing HATE the song, “The Entertainer”!

    I love it when they come though the neighborhood in July playing Christmas songs.
