We went out for ice cream

The forecast was a pretty good one, with highs not to exceed 90.  We haven't gone for a lot of motorcycle rides this summer because of the extreme heat, and it looked like this was a day for a ride.  We set out early this morning.

We were just going on a little jaunt, and I had ice cream in mind.

This place is in Versailles, Missouri, where so many of Cliff's relatives live.  Cliff says he remembers getting banana splits here when he was a kid.  So yes, I did get my ice cream.  
We visited with his Aunt Gertrude and then chatted with a couple of his cousins, Darryl and Dale.  It got a somewhat warm coming home, but it wasn't so bad as long as we were on the move.   Poking along through the towns and sitting at stop signs was a little uncomfortable.
It was a good ride.

ice cream sounds good. I was hot driving around KC doing inspections cause my ac went out. My car said it was 98 this afternoon.

I bet they had good ice cream at a reasonable price there. Love those kind of shops.


Summer and ice cream go hand in hand. Glad you got your treat and got in a ride too.

We are in the 70's here this evening and it sure feels good...tomorrow the high maybe in the mid 70's too. It's so nice to have a little break from the heat. It won't last but a day. Ice cream always seems to taste better when it's hot out.

Thank you for that! The Dari Kup was always our pit stop when walking to Grandma Faye's house (with the kids). When I was a kid, I remember sitting in the back of the truck with my brother and eating corn dogs there. Now when we visit, it's a must for a chicken sandwich.

And I loved seeing Aunt Gertrude's name mentioned (and would that have been my Uncle Dale?). Anyway, I feel like I got a little taste of home this morning. Thank you!

Angela, I actually thought of you when I took the picture. And yes, I was talking about your Uncle Dale.
