The Ice-Cream Truck

 Here is the latest jigsaw we finished; a cat's ice-cream truck. Remember ice-cream trucks? Are they almost a thing of the past? Do any come near your homes in the summer?


The counter is an ice-cream sandwich.


The wheels are doughnuts.



Here is an example of the joy that ice-cream brings. Our teenage granddaughter at the ice cream shop when she was very little.

Very pretty and cute jigsaw. I am playing e-jigsaw on my handphone and getting hooked on it. Yes, your 1st granddaughter has grown into a beautiful young lady now. She was so cute as a toddler.

What an adorable puzzle. Even cuter baby Anne Marie.
I just bought some ice cream yesterday. It was a limited edition flavor. It was called box of chocolates and it had little tiny chocolates just like you would get in a box.

I do wish we lived nearer, we could exchange jigsaws. I love this one. I haven't heard an ice cream van for a long while, my kids loved them when they were small.

Cute puzzle too.

The photo is so adorable and I love the puzzle too!

George said...

I haven't seen (or heard) an ice cream truck in ages. That's a great picture of your granddaughter.

Rose said...

That is a cute puzzle. Every year there is an ice cream truck that comes around a few times...but it goes so fast it is hard to catch it.

Jeanette said...

Loved the ice cream trucks when I was a child and my kids did too when they were children! I was on a first name basis with the driver we stopped him so much!

Oh what a darling picture of your granddaughter in times past! Look at those darling piggie tails!! *lol* We don't have the ice cream truck drive out here anymore. He used to, when there were loads of children (ours included) in the few houses out here & it was worth his while. But he hasn't been here in years. Sad, actually. ~Andrea xoxo

I remember them, but they do not come around here, now. But then, our street, does not have little children.

Yes, I can see, how your daughter feels that your hair, pin curled, makes you look like an old lady!!!!!! Pin curled hair is a thing of the past, for all. So its results do look 'old'.

I need some softness, around my face. With a short cut, which I now hate, the only way to add softness, is to pin curl. To me, the soft effect, is worth the 'old-ness look." -smile-

When it grows enough, I hope for a soft perm. And will go from there.

WOW I love that puzzle! So colorful and whimsical! I'm fixing to make an ice cream sandwich cake for our get-together tomorrow. I can't wait. It's so easy and fun to make, and everyone goes nuts over it. Adorable picture of your little granddaughter "back in the day," haaahaha. They grow up so fast. xoxo

What a cute puzzle! I just finished one as well and will post about it this weekend.

Ruth Hiebert said...

Ice-cream is the perfect treat anytime.

Mari said...

I like the puzzle! Your granddaughter was just adorable.
We don't get ice cream trucks. We used to when we lived more in the city. Now it seems they are a bit creepy!

DeniseinVA said...

Your granddaughter is adorable! Such a delightful smile. Fun jigsaw puzzle, I love these colorful ones. We get an ice-cream truck come round. I love it when I hear the music, a sound from my own childhood also.

We have ice cream trucks all summer. It's always so exciting to spot the first Mr. Softee of the season. Hope you're having a good weekend.

Gracie and Bobbi said...

I remember the ice cream trucks from when I was a little girl. Mom would give each of us kids a dime and we'd wait by the road for the ding of the truck to become closer... it is a great memory. My daughter has a truck that comes by her house in the summer with snow cones and such - and the girls love it. This picture of your granddaughter is so sweet!!!! She's a doll. Can you believe how our little ones have grown so much?
