Ice Cream Anyone?

ONE OF MY FAVORITE PLACES TO GO IS BASKIN ROBBINS. MAYBE SIMPLY FOR SENTIMENTAL REASONS. AS A CHILD DAD WOULD TAKE ME TO BASKIN ROBBINS WHEN EVER I ASKED HIM TO. HE HAD SUCH A SWEET TOOTH! MY BROTHER GEOFF AND I WOULD ORDER BUBBLEGUM FLAVOR SO WE COULD CHEW THE GUM. THEN I DISCOVERED CHOCOLATE CHIP. I MEAN REALLY IS THERE ANY OTHER FLAVOR!?! YESTERDAY I MADE A RUN WITH THE SENIORS TO BASKIN ROBBINS AND AS I WAS SITTING THERE I REALIZED ONCE I MADE THE SWITCH TO CHOCOLATE CHIP I HAVE NEVER TRIED ANYTHING ELSE. EVERYTIME I GO IT IS ALWAYS CHOCOLATE CHIP.MMMMMM YUMMY! AS I WAS ENJOYING MY ICECREAM I WAS SECRETLY SNAPPING PHOTOS OF MY SENIORS! THESE TWO IN PARTICULAR ALWAYS MAKE ME LAUGH. ON THURSDAYS I TAKE THEM TO SAFEWAY AND QFC TO DO THEIR SHOPPING. THE ROUTE WE TAKE HOME DRIVES RIGHT PASSED BASKIN ROBBINS. EVERY TIME WE GET NEAR JEAN ASKS ME WHEN WE WILL GO. WHILE I WAS DRIVING I COULD HEAR THE GROCERY BAGS IN THE BACK OF THE BUS MOVING AROUND. AS I TURNED THE CORNER IN FRONT OF BASKIN ROBBINS JEANS ICE CREAM SHE HAD JUST BOUGHT AT SAFEWAY CAME ROLLING DOWN THE ISLE AND LANDED BY MY FEET. I TOLD HER "IT'S OK JEAN, I'LL GET YOU TO BASKIN ROBBINS AS FAST AS I CAN!" OK SO MOST SENIOR CITIZENS ARE SLOW AND FEEBLE IF THEY REACH THE AGE JEAN IS BUT YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN HOW SHE INHALED HER ICECREAM!!! I THINK SHE SET A NEW WORLD RECORD! I WAS SITTING FOR 2-3 MINUTES BEFORE SHE CAME TO THE TABLE AND SHE FINISHED A GOOD 10 MINUTES BEFORE I DID! ANYWAY I LOVE MY SENIORS!!! HERE ARE A COUPLE OF SECRET PICTURES OF THEM.JEAN AND EDDIE LOOK HOW EXCITED SHE IS TO GET TO THE TABLE!
SERIOUSLY, INHALED IT!!!! SHE IS SO FUNNY....



THEY ARE ALWAYS SO GRATEFUL EVERYTIME I TAKE THEM. THEY OFTEN REMIND ME OF THE SIMPLE THINGS IN LIFE. I AM GRATEFUL FOR THEM AND THE RELATIONSHIPS I HAVE FORMED.

I think the lesson here is that you never know how much time you have left, so enjoy that ice cream and enjoy it fast!
