    Knowing from a close connected experience... :'(

    An adult should be there beside the ice-cream truck to watch out for idiots who don't know what an ice-cream truck is and who are driving down the road not paying enough attention.

    That was about 47 years ago. Not me. My boss lost his little angel one day like that. He was never the same... :'( The business shut down soon after that happened. He stopped working. I don't know what became of him.

    Now people have phones they're looking at sometimes while they might be passing an ice-cream truck.

    I'd stand in the road now for sure as a guard to keep the little ones safe and SMILING for many more years to come.

    Most people just listen to music and watch movies. I EXPERIENCE them.

    I have one a couple of miles from me and still going strong in central Illinois.

    Fortunately there are still some of these around and doing well. The Made-Rite was born in Muscatine, Iowa in the 20's.

    My ESL-57s once belonged to a Tweeter VP. :)
    Tweeter (Etc.) was a big deal here in the Northeast once upon a time.

    2 liter bottle? What the heck is that?

    Mom would send my brother and I for a run to the grocery store, and having to balance these wobbly 8-packs on the handlebars of my bike. Occasionally, a bottle or two didn't make it home! :smile:

    I think ours was red. Oh the memories of choking on Liver and Onions, well-done steak, and Fish on Fridays. I don't think my mom ever cooked anything that I liked. If it weren't for paint chips I probably would have starved to death.

    Was long gone by around 1963~64. Large pizzas were $1.75-$2.00 in late 1950's. Funny names for their sandwiches.

    I forgot to mention that our local Carroll's (Burlington, Vermont) was built on the site of the original Elizabeth Lund Home for Unwed Mothers, birthplace of infamous serial killer Ted Bundy. :o

    I went to a place similar while in Colorado a few years back. Open air shack, great big pit and served a few things that were super delicious. I ate there 3 times during my 6 days in CO.

    Pit, ya ever eat Big John's Bbq over in Peoria back in the day? It was outstanding in the 70's & 80's. It's opened and closed countless times through the years since John died. It was never the same after he left.

    "Carroll's Club Burger®, it's love at first bite."

    I remember seeing that commercial about 5 times a day between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. after school circa 1975, which is about the time our local Carroll's (Burlington, Vermont) closed for good. I never got a chance to try one. :o

    My aunt always made "Russian Tea" with Tang at Christmas. I can't remember what the extra ingredients were, but it remained a dry mix. Maybe Tang and instant tea?

    om-nom-nom. ;)
    There really are "Russian style" flavored teas, as opposed to "Russian Caravan" style teas -- with citrus (usually bergamot, like Earl Grey, and/or grapefruit -- based on my limited understanding of same (gleaned mostly from https://www.uptontea.com and https://www.harney.com/

    Late to the party but....

    My Mom worked at Fat Boy back in the 60's........Back then, legend has it, the kids from Morse High in Bath hung out at Fat Boy and the kids from Brunswick hung out at Ernie's Drive In.
