Five things....

Things that the 5 men in every woman's life says....

1. Ice Man----"Here it is, where do you want me to put it?"

2. TV Man----"Now that it's in, how do you like it?"

3. Dentist----"Now that it's out, how do you feel?"

4. Banker----"If you don't stop putting it in and taking it out, you'll lose interest!"

5. Insurance Man----"If you don't take it out now, you'll regret it the rest of your life!"

No history book needed. That Old Guys is for real. I was only teasing. I can remember waiting for the ice man to come in the summer and we would ask for free samples from the chips that were made when he downsized the blocks. I don't remember if popsicles were invented then or we just couldn't afford them as my dad didn't make much per hour back then. Now that I think back maybe they were the first flavored popsicles when I think about some of the rivers or ponds where that ice was cut from.Old Guys

We had a card that we put in the window that had 25 & 50 on one side and 75 & 100 on the other and whatever number was up was what the iceman delivered.

SNOW ice cream! Back when you didn't have to worry 'bout pollution.

We'd scrape it off the top of our car (and probably ate a lot of dirt) by the buckets full.

Never seemed strange to us that Mom made ice cream for us in winter.

And yes, when I was young we got snow often here in the pines of N E Louisiana. Mom even ordered snow suits for us each winter from Sears Roebuck & Co.

YEP, the ice man has gone the way of the milk man. Mom had a card like that to put in the window for milk delivery.

Dad had to rig a wire basket on the fence to put the milk bottles in, cuz we had a dog that HATED the milk man.

OC - ain't no way I'm ever going to say that you and I are about the same age after this.

We always had a refrigerator and No it didn't have a coil on top. I will concede that we had to put water in those little trays to make ice cubes,but never had ice delivered.

Who had $1.00 to spend on ice, it was always 25 or 50 cents worth.
