The last cone...

I went to Kimballs at noon today for my last ice cream cone of the season. [I thought they were closing today but they are actually open until October 14th!] I chose gingersnap molasses (in your memory, Valerie) and it was delicious. I am enjoying a nice rainy Fall holiday; sorry to all of you on the other coast that aren't enjoying Columbus Day today.

That was always Kyle's favorite too. He still talks about it. We haven't tried to recreate it, but we should. Yum!

i still can't believe bates is owned by kimball's. i have many memories of driving from acton to bates in our old blue station wagon, pulling up to the fence where the cows were, and eating our ice cream cones... it's a treasure! have you been to butterbrook farm? that's cool too!!

Oh Kimball's... how I miss you. The sweet taste of a kiddie cone is so addicting...

Oh, that makes me so jealous! I miss that place. I constantly think I should open up a place like Kimball's where we live, but hubby reminds me I would have to be there everyday and how much work... so for now I just think back to the days that were... Kimballs!

My mouth is watering! I love that place...when I make it there once a year!

Hi Ellen! I was gone for about ten days, but now I am back and catching up on blogs before I start my chores. That ice cream looks yummy, and I loved the apple photos. I tried a new kind this year at our apple farm ... mutju? mutshu? something. It was really good. Glad you are enjoying fall out there.

Ellen! Gosh you make me miss New England. I'm glad I found your blog. I think of you and your love for graham crackers and chocolate frosting every time I eat a white trash treat.
I keep urging Michael to find a surgical conference to attend in Beantown so I can tag along. No luck yet. Alas!
