Our trip to Blue Bell -- Free ice cream, free tour!

Our visit included a tour which was free as their gift to the many affected by the hurricane. There were a lot of children on the tour. One of the employees said that this season generally has hardly children visiting. They knew there just wasn't anything exciting to do in Houston with no power, little food, and the other hardships.

The first picture is my favorite, our ice cream was included in the tour. This time they gave us double dips.

BP had Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough , Mrs. Jim. had Pecan Caramel Fudge, and I had Strawberry. I can't eat nuts anymore or I would have loved to have had something with pecans. (

The old truck at the bottom is a 1932 Model B Ford. The Model B trucks and cars used a four cylinder engine rather than the new for 1932 Flathead V-8 (eight cylinder) engine.
