Oooh, yes! Well done. And I can't stand that ice cream truck music that's already playing in my neighborhood, too.

Hi Gerald - I love this haiga, it captures so much for me having grown up on a big council estate in South Wales. That jingle... from streets away... Mr Whippy, Mr Softee and Tonibel! I still love 99s! Thanks for this.
Best

Gerald - a good sign of spring in the city. We don't have ice cream trucks out here, I was just missing the sounds 2 days ago.

My brother was a man who was selling ice cream for a while, even in a hot climate he didn't make enough to pay the rent, groceries, etc. Of course, a man and van of ice cream is nice.It was nice to have cash every day, but it just wasn't enough, and he worked 10 hours a day at besides.
