    They play "La Cucaracha" in my neighborhood.

    And then we have the vendors on the bicycle carts selling corn on the cob, ice cream bars, chips, cotton candy, hot dogs and God only knows what else.

    It is 112 degrees out there, and they are selling corn on the cob with mayonnaise on it.

    And just about the time school lets out, a guy comes by pushing a paletero cart ringing his bells.

    And then there are the fruit and vegetable vendors that go door to door.

    It is an interesting world.

    I can't think of what our ice cream trucks play, but I think one plays "It's a Small World". We also have the people with hand carts selling corn and pork rinds. Yuck.

    * Our ice-cream truck vendor must be a seasonal resident. He's usually only here the 5 coldest weeks of our climate-- [​IMG]

    Quote:Here, too! But what's worse than that is that we live WAY out in the boonies, and we hear an ice-cream truck playing "Turkey In The Straw" a couple times a week, but we have NEVER SEEN THE TRUCK!

    We have Ghost Truck.

    Rufus! Where do you live man, sounds like you got the good vendors!

    We have an ice cream truck that speeds through our court so fast that by the time my husband sprints outside with dollar bills in hand, he's gone!

    Umm, that is the only time you will find me there too, delete hurricane season, and hot sweaty weather. Fine and balmy, I am all over that. Living in the world's finest weather, I have to be picky.​
