Nothing like a cold ice cream on a really hot day.  Great way to cool off when the temperature is rising.  We've all had more than our share of hot days lately.

Laura - We definitely have a lot of places to choose from. There's no shortage of ice cream options.

Dianne - Thank you Dianne! I had a bit of fun creating this one.

Debra - Line 'em up Debra! You can start with the first one on the list and eat your way through the Raleigh area!

Richard - That's what I'm saying!

Ann - Give in to the temptation Ann! It's hot out there!

Ed - Yet another reason to be proud to be an American!!!

Tom - Thank you sir. And I couldn't agree more.

Roger - That you are my friend. That you are!

Endre - I believe it! My BIC was just there over the weekend and I'm going to have to ask him too.

Elyse - That's what I'm wondering!!!!

Doug - You ain't kidding about us all having our fair share of hot days recently/

Larry & Sheila - Thank you for the genius remark. It's not often my name and that word are used in the same sentence!!! We do have a few carvels here. But it's not like on Long Island where it's a staple in the neighborhood.

Joan - There's one popular one near my office and the lines were pretty long these past few days.

Sharon - Ha! Ha! Ha! My only concern was for those poor kittens being juggled by the man in the gorilla suit! (see comment #12) I have not had coffee oreo. But I'm a purist. Nothing in my ice cream but ice cream!

Carla - I thought those instructions were nothing short of a fleeting moment of brilliance on my part! Because that doesn't happen too often, I have to boast about it some!!!

Nick - I'm an ice cream fanatic. It doesn't matter what season it is, there's always some in my freezer!
