Summer Escape

On a hot day with the humidity raising temperatures to what seems almost unbearable, I escape to a childhood memory that always bring a smile. The bells ring in the neighborhood with the promise of a soon arrival of a welcomed escape. So many choices….cold, refreshing and delightful. Fruity or rich flavor….whatever I choose cannot go wrong. The heat beats down on the pavement as for a brief moment I feel the chill of a flavorful chill of creaminess. Almost daily in summer we welcomed the visit. Oh how wonderful to be a child and know this blessed treat and anticipation. Life seemed so simple with this reward.
