Today I parked my ice cream truck next to a popular community swimming pool. There were so many children that it was overwhelming. I'm going to sleep well tonight.

Charging more to the less appealing children will help balance things out when you provide free cones to some of the others.

If a child doesn't have quite enough money, don't turn him away. Simply share a treat with the child. After all, you deserve a treat yourself.

Little girls really enjoy it when you put flowers in their hair. It makes them feel pretty. So I've begun picking daisies to have in the truck. It's often that extra touch that brings the customers back for more.

Not all children have money for ice cream. But I don't wish to deny even the poorest child my special treats. So I've come up with a system whereby the children can earn the ice cream by doing little tasks. My favorite so far is having them hose down the outside of the truck and then scrub it with giant foam sponges. Poor children love spraying each other with hoses.

Today I found a pleasant suburban street with plenty of children playing outdoors. I parked my ice cream truck in the shade provided by a large tree, and decided to spend the afternoon relaxing, enjoying the sights and sounds. It was an affluent neighborhood, and the children had plenty of money on hand with which to purchase my special treats.

Today I found a nice secluded area by a calm lake. I had only a few customers, but they were all winners. I've decided to spend the night here, and will travel early in the morning.

This afternoon I went to the grocery store to stock up on frozen treats. In my excitement about this trip, I had neglected to purchase any ice cream. After a morning of explaining that I actually had nothing for sale, I decided to take a quick drive to the store. The second half of the day was even more enjoyable, and slightly profitable.

The warm weather is finally here, which means that children all over the country will be coming outdoors to play. It also means time for adventure. This year I've decided to take a couple of weeks to explore a little of the country in my ice cream truck. I've got the truck all packed, with sleeping bags for comfort and restraints for safety. I also have maps with lots of secluded, wooded areas marked for enjoyment and exploration.
Grandmother is helping by sponsoring this trip. In return, I will be posting some updates from the road. Wherever children are playing, I will be there.
