Well, a happy Monday morning to everybody. Another cloudy, drizzly day is forecast for Central PA. Yesterday was overcast, but all we really ended up getting were showery sprinkles and were spotty, to say the least. Today is going to be a replay, and then overnight the temps are going to drop. Tomorrow's high is expected to be in the mid 30s (F).
I went down to York yesterday to have lunch with my friend Betsy. Our routine is always the same, lunch at the Imperial Gourmet and desert at Dairy Queen. Betsy decided on an chocolate dipped ice cream cone, which led to a discussion on ice cream cones. She found it odd that we never had cones while I was growling up. My mom always served up bowls of ice cream, never cones. I see cones as messy, and, of course, her chocolate dip fell off and the ice cream began to melt and dribble down over her fingers. Wisely, I chose a cherry Blizzard with chocolate chips and, for the first time, posted a picture on Facebook. Quite a number of people recommended other Blizzards to try: Turtle, Butterfinger, Oreo, and Chocolate Chocolate Chip, to name a few. Evidently Blizzards are very, very popular. Here's the pic of the one I had for dessert. You can see her cone (pre-melt) in the background.
