When I was a kid, my parents always checked my candy first (I'm 50).
The ice cream man still comes around but his prices are higher.
We had a Helm's Bakery truck that came by too - with donuts and pastries and a drawer of candy, like Smarties.

No fireflies in Northern CA.

I like to open up a container of raw almonds and eat them . . it reminds me of grandma's house the the almond tree in her yard. We used to crack the shells and eat the nuts still we were stuffed.
