The Sally dog and I were just sitting looking out the front window when the first icecream truck of the season cruised passed our house.

Bailey, Cleo and I saw the first one on Sunday.

Quite a surprise, since they usually don't start up til after Victoria Day <around May 24th> here.

I'll be holding Setanta's ice cream money for him.

Dys and ehBeth, that is one of the joys of New Mexico for me. I could hardly believe my eyes the first time I saw one, a month or so ago. Reminded me of paleta vendors in LA and Mexico, and those had gotten fewer in my part of LA, and we had none in north north CA. Precious sounds...

Why aren't there Lone Star beer trucks going through the neighborhoods like that?

I remember, as a child, that the deep grape popsicles tasting like wine.

So what is in ice cream wagons now? This looks like more than paletas... I'll have to check it out, and will get back to you.

We had Mr. Softie trucks that had a very distinct little musical jingle instead of a bell. My girlfriend wanted it played as she walked down the aisle at her wedding, but we couldn't find a recording and couldn't figure out a musical way to duplicate it. She thought the sound of it would make everyone happy and get them in the mood to eat.

Vanilla custard swirl with chocolate sprinkles in a sugar cone please.

The present day ice cream truck plays a maddening version of Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head. With no kids around, I generally let it pass me by.

I remember one day about 10 years ago when I was living in the states, I was sitting on my front porch one day and the ice cream truck goes flying by. The faster he drove, the faster the music went and he was hauling.
It was funny as hell.
