I heard a familiar sound from my childhood.

Surely not, this is February.
The ice cream truck? I have heard of early spring and of global warming but the ice cream truck in February?

Ha! It is fun for me to look at the ice lollies. I will have a Mississippi Mud Sandwich in the summer please :-)

Hi Chris,
You can imagine my surprise when I heard the ice cream truck's bell. It is only February! Mississippi Mud Sandwich sounds yummy. I shall remember that once Summer comes.
I like "ice lollies" much better than ice cream trucks.
Thank you for that!

Oh Q sorry! We call the ice creams on sticks 'ice lollies'. The trucks we call 'ice cream vans'. The mysteries of language :-)

Dear Chris,
So funny! We call the frozen flavored ice on a stick, "popsicles". The ice cream on a stick are "ice cream bars".
I still like ice lollies!
Language is interesting.
Thanks for clearing this up for me. Too funny!

Hi Dave!
I have been wondering what you have been doing.
Global warming is changing the way we do things. Ice cream trucks in February? Okay. As long as they use the bell and not the crazy music to let us know they are on our street.
