    It excites all the senses…
    loaded with tension and the hopes of rewards.

    Four bagger; this pinch hitter changed the score; cone run.

    Ah, the tune of the ice cream truck once the single most iconic sound and sight of Summer! Once all our bases were loaded with a regular treat to or from school to cool us down.

    working the ice cream
    we walk all the way back
    to yesterday
