Lieutenant Dan….Ice-Cream

Ice cream means something different to everyone. For some it evokes childhood memories of ice-cream vans driving through the streets on hot summer afternoons, music playing through a single megaphone speaker on the roof.  Growing up in a town with no McDonald’s, I remember running barefoot down the road clutching my pocket money and hoping … Continue reading
