Joys of Summer
Here in Jerz when summer rolls around tons of towns offer a summer concert series – basically for the month of July a different band or group plays a free concert each week in the local town square or park.
Verona kicked off theirs last night with Bobby & The Jets and their Elton John tribute. It rocked.
Better than the music though was the fact that the ice cream truck was parked right there in the town square the entire time! When I was a kid, there was no sound better than the chime of an ice cream truck. My order was always the same (Toasted Almond Bar), but I took great pleasure in the selection process and always had to check out all of the different treats before settling on my usual.
I’m near 40 now but I still took the same childish delight in my Toasted Almond bar. Ahhhhh, sweet sweet summer.
