ABBOTT'S CUSTARD ABOUT TO REOPEN!!!
I may not LOOK desperate, but I am...
I'm just sayin'....
Abbott's closes for the winter.
And, SURE.... Christmas keeps me going for a while.
The inevitable January.... Cold. Stormy.Windy. Did I mention cold?
Followed by February.
Today is March 1, 2011! Oh, Happy Days are Here Again! :)
Sure, possums on the porch signal warming trends.
Melting slushy piles of snow... The same.
THIS is history. Momentous. Serendipitous. Wondrous. And every other "ous" you can imagine.
The good ones, that is.
This is Abbott's Frozen Custard, my favorite ice cream stand.
Here's the original one I went to as a little girl:
That's the 1939 photo... AHEM. I wasn't even a consideration on the planet then.
Ah. Here we go:
Abbott's original location in Charlotte, the lakeside section of Rochester, NY.
I'd ride the bus down to the lake and buy a cone with my babysitting money.
Now it's franchised. There's one near Tina and Audra in Colorado.
One in Massachusetts.
A bunch around here.
I plan to visit tonight when it's OPEN...
My first Abbott's of the season and Major League Baseball spring training games on YES Network.
Could life possibly get better than THAT???
I submit that it cannot!
