Leonard had a bike bell too ~ you know the kind ~ like the ones on every little tricycle ~ it kind of went Brrring, Brrring, Brrring! It didn't look anything like the one below! I just put that one in because it's so CRAZY looking!! Talk about bling! Anyway......
"Leonard would come by in the evenings during the summer ~ not every evening ~ but enough of them! He sold things besides popsicles, like ice cream bars & sandwiches, and Dixie cups ~ but plain old popsicles were my favorite. He had a bazillion flavors too!! Watermelon, Grape, Banana, Cherry, Orange, Root Beer, Lime, Sky Blue, Strawberry, Lemonade, Coconut, Peach and my personal favorite ~ Bubble Gum Pink!!
There were a lot of kids in my neighborhood and when we heard the bell we would come running! "What flavors today Leonard?" "Anything new?"
It would take a while to decide which flavor to choose ~ "Leonard" always waited patiently. It was great......and it was only a nickel!!
One summer he just didn't come ~ we kids all decided he must have died. We missed him.
