Step Away from the Candy!!!

Lil' me..wearing a hand-me-down jumper from our neighbor Cassie, (which was then probably handed down to Cami, aka The Birthday Girl) Farrell's Ice Cream Parlor, circa 1972

Along with my sweet memories of Farrell's Ice Cream Parlor, I've been blessed with a treasure trove of pictures...I thought I'd share this one with you after reading your lovely comments on The Birthday Girl post.

Lissa, in addition to the candy...the green river soda was one of my favorite things about Farrell's...(My brothers always chose to order a "grave yard" meaning that they wanted all of the pop flavors available to be mixed together into one drink..I did that too..but not at Farrell's!) I feel like it was just yesterday that I was waiting in anticipation for that big glass full of Green River Soda to be delivered to me! I edited that out of my earlier post because I couldn't remember the name of the "Pig Trough" dessert which they would present with a big fanfare...so I googled it..and found the entire Farrell's menu! I also found this commercial from the early 80's...remember this???

(Before watching the video...I recommend scrolling down to the bottom of this page to mute my playlist.)

What fun!!!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
