Yes we have an ice cream truck that comes through here, but the music he plays is annoying. I remember as a kid in Baltimore, the Good Humor truck would come through and the driver had to manually ring the bells by pulling a string. We would yell "Wait a minute!" and he would stop and we would go running to get our daily ice cream.
They must be listening to The Greasy Skillet Show. Hosted by RadioJonD! Every Saturday night 8:00 PM - 10:00 PM Eastern time!
Not only do we have at least 2 - 3 that come multiple times a day from about April to December, but we have a PIZZA TRUCK (yes, a truck that sells hot pizza!!!!) and TWO hucksters that sell fruit! I live in a very old-fashioned neighborhood in Philadelphia. Still have many corner Mom & Pop stores, too.
I wish it could be Christmas forever...
He still comes here even in the winter. In fact one just drove by 30 minutes ago when I was outside watering plants. We also have guys that push carts with ice cream and ride bikes pulling ice cream carts.
When I was real little I remember our ice cream man hands would tremble real bad. I always thought his hands were just cold and shivering from putting his hands in the freezer. Later I found out he had an illness that caused it.
