I remember growing up going to get an ice cream cone and they would dip it in the chocolate, I love that, it was my favorite…we need to go get ice cream cones…oh honey. Hint! Hint!
I remember that I would be eating my ice cream cone and then as Poppa and Granny got done with theirs, they knew I liked the cone, they would stick what was left of their cone bottom in my ice cream to eat. I loved that, but as I have gotten older and germ-a-fobier I think I would be freaking out if anyone did that now. I am sure there was spit on the cone…but hey I'm still here so I survived.
We used to go to one place and the ice cream cones were huge and they would have candy and gum and stuff in them, that was fun. I remember by the time you were done with your cone you had a freakin' wad of gum in your mouth…two treats in one!! I remember them being so inexpensive too, not that I paid cause I was a kid, but still I remember it being a great deal.
I remember our one bus driver, and the last day of school he stopped at the store on the corner and he bought the whole bus load of kids an ice cream drum stick, you would not see that now probably, for one, kids are horrible (it's true – have you seen some of the videos of the kids on buses), and two, the bus driver would probably be fired for leaving the bus while the kids were still on there. Boy I remember growing up without the troubles of now a days. I sure miss those times don't you?
Another thing I remember is I hated and still do, meringue, I love a lemon pie but the meringue on the top…yuck, so I would always slide it off onto Poppa's plate and he would eat it.
Memories are funny aren't they? I mean one leads to another and another…oh and smells are a great memory maker, have you ever smelled a perfume or something and it totally takes you back to a special memory? Or the worst is you can't remember what the smell reminds you of. Ha! One time Granny made this apple pie and I don't know if she set it on the window to cool or what, but when I ate it, I said "this pie tastes like Andy and Marion's manure smells". Oops, that comment did not go over well.
So this is my last card to share from my downline shoebox. (The one I did was a case of a card I have already shown on here, so I won't show mine again).
This card was by Sheri Smith, and I love the banner on top, which is just the sugar cone stamp in the set…brilliant!
Such a cute card…thanks Sheri.
So I updated my Etsy store today, and I put a link on the top of my blog. I also wanted to remind you to not forget about pre-ordering your new catalog, I also put a link up there too. What else? Oh don't forget about your chance to earn tickets for the Free Stamp Set of the Week. It's the cute set Punched Posies which is a Level 2 Hostess set.
Jeff and I started watching the Second Season of Leverage tonight, we want to get it all watched so we are ready when season three starts so we can watch it on TV. Have you seen it? It is so good. I love the long haired dude. I also got season 2 of TrueBlood, I saw most of them on TV, but want to re-watch them as well.
Well my book is calling me, I might get it finished tonight.
Have an awesome Friday and thanks for stopping in!

Thanks for the memories! (me and Bob Hope). I remember that every Friday on the way home from nursing school, my girlfriend and I would stop at High's Ice Cream store and get three scoops of ice cream on a sugar cone. It was 30 cents a scoop. Then we would see who finished theirs first. Ahhh those were the days. (Archie and Edith Bunker)! Have a great holiday weekend.
What is Leverage about?
The ice cream cone place was in Mount Carmel.
I hate meringue too!

Oh I Love Sheri's Banner idea too!! Awesome!
And I love your Granny and Poppa stories!!
I'm alway's depressed after going to the Ice Cream stand anymore. You're all excited to go then when they tell you how much the two sundeas just cost your like Crap I could of got 3 boxes of Ice Cream for that!! BUT to go get Rits's (do you have Rita's in AZ? It's an Italian Ice Chain and so so YUMMY!) doesn't bother me cause I can't buy THAT in a store I guess.
Da BFF Tracy

WOW!!! You brought back some memories for me. Our Dairy Queen had butterscotch dipped cones….not caramel which is what a lot of places call butterscotch now days but real honest to goodness butterscotch. You would bite into that hard shell and start sucking the ice cream out so it wouldn't drip all over the place.
And the way things taste like a smell???? McDonald's skunk fries. I had McDonald's fries once that I promise you tasted just like a skunk smells. AWFUL!!!
Meringue makes me think of my grandpa. He called it calf slobber…now I know you will never eat. LOL
