Special Delivery

I have to share a random act of kindness with you. A few days ago we were relaxing at home when our doorbell rang. Bob answered the door, to find our friend and neighbor Patty at the door with some ice cream. She had posted something on Facebook, a few days earlier about how good this ice cream was, and I commented that it would be nice to share some. She was kind enough to get a dish of it for us.
.
Her husband, Chip was driving her in this neat old car, so of course, I had to take a picture of it too!

Thanks Chip and Patty - it was delicious!

* I believe the ice cream was white chocolate strawberry cheesecake!

That was very sweet! Maybe if you comment about how nice it would be to go for a ride in that old car, you'd get a little spin around town! :) That's another thing I've noticed about Michigan...all the old antique cars. And everyone is getting them out of their winter storage now.

Mari,

Love that old Chevy. My first husband had one almost identical to it. Those old cars had style. Not like the boxes they make today. :-)

The ice cream looks delicious.

Have a wonderful day, my friend.
Blessings,
Mary
