Robin and Allie have been cheerful backup in the store. My aunt drove by and did a honk and wave. A sheriff dropped in and left a flyer for some missing kids. Kind of makes painting ice cream pretty frivolous... Actually, the ice cream sundae was the answer to the "frivolous" Soda Fountain drinks that were outlawed for sale on Sundays. Story goes- a minister in Ithaca, NY wanted a cool refresher and, since the store couldn't fix him a soda, they took the syrup from the soda, put it in a cup and added a dollop of ice cream , some extra syrup with a cherry on top. The minister named it the Ice Cream Sundae- sanctifying it's existence.
