Since we are in the middle of the hot summer time and most people are doing various summer activities such as the picnics, swimming, beaches, games, and vacations.
Anyway; I am going to write a short blog entry about the ice cream truck and its musical jingle box. This is something I would like to reminisce about my short childhood years.
Sometimes, there are small things that reminds us of the days gone by during the summer. Like the ice cream trucks for example. We don’t see very many of them going along the streets of the neighborhoods to sell the cold treats to kids of all ages.
Well, I remembered my days rather vaguely but my grandparents have reminisced about the ice truck that I have ridden with my Granddaddy many years ago as a little girl. They were the days when Granddaddy was making his rounds in the neighborhoods that he is allotted to so that he can sell the varieties of the sugary cold treats to the neighborhood kids. I can imagine their envy whenever they see me riding the ice cream truck with her Granddaddy. It was such a wonderful time. Well, it was the time that I could not remember except for the snippets of the ice cream music box that I’ve heard being played when Granddaddy announced his arrival in the street before parking to the side so the kids along with their parents or family members can run up to purchase the mouth-watering treats.
It the sound of the musical jingles of the ice truck that I remembered hearing even though I could not hear very well. It was played loud enough for the kids in the neighborhood to hear. So I became fascinated by the sound of the jingle music box that my legs or feets tap in rhythm. That was years before I started collecting music boxes for some time.
So this is another short blog that I’d like to reminisce about. It’s one of those times that brings back memories for some people.
