We were talking about Ice Cream awile back.....

Well, Good Manners Ice Cream trailer will be open as of Friday may 21's at 6:00 p.m.

The business belongs to our youngest son Braydon - the fella on the right in the pic. The other fella is our oldest son Bryan.

Because Braydon and his fiance Suzie both have day jobs the hours of operation - to start anyway - will be :

Monday to Friday 6:00 p.m. till ....the last person shows up.

Saturday and Sunday from Noon until the same as above.

Lots of parking, some gravel or lots of grass( When we run our Craft Show we have over 100 Crafters - lots means LOTS) so if you like Ice Cream, if you have a bunch of friends who like Ice Cream and you all happen to have hot rods, street rods, restored, bikes, trucks........tractors..........whatever, then come on over.

The address is : 4022 Victoria Ave, Vineland Ontario. We're 10 minutes north of the QEW and Lake Ontario ( exit # 57),  40 minutes south of lake Erie. Victoria Ave ( also known as Regional Rd #24) is the only road the links both lakes in a straight line.Good Manners Ice Cream.jpg

Good luck with the opening Randy.

We have lots of ice cream stands around here, doesn't hurt that the Chapmans plant is a couple of towns over.

 s.o.b. bingo, yea i do, lol,  if somebody had of asked me that question anytime some years ago i couldn't remember where.  the first one i remember was in quebec on "cote de lise blvd" by the airport.  good one, apparently we are suppose to get use to them, from what i am getting out of it they are a couple of $$$'s cheaper than a traffic light light corner and they have installed 4 or 5 down this way. man thats way back. lol

They're all over the place now. I actually prefer them to just sitting, waiting at a light. I do wish though that more people understood how to use them. I also wonder how they determine where they are being installed. It makes sense if it's a high traffic intersection - and they have the physical room to lay it out but some of them....such as at he end of the 406 and East main St Welland, it's a 3 way intersection with one side leading directly into or out of the tunnel under the canal. The first time they laid it out ( they had to re-configure it because it was such a clusterf#ck) local folks actually took lawnchairs and beverages to watch the action. There's another one on the north and south side of the 7th Street bridge at the QEW. A cloverleaf worked fine but they wanted to incorporate the Service roads with the off/on ramps and 7th street. Just seemed like a weird place to put two of them.

The kids still have Ice Cream if anyone wants it. They'll be completely out by end of day tomorrow. Next delivery will be Thursday........my wife and I suggested last week that he stash a dozen extra tubs in one of his extra freezers, but being new to this business he thought they'd be okay - and that would have been another $500.00 outlay. He's very surprised, sad they they'll run out but ecstatic at the sales - and he learned not to make this mistake again, you need to spend it to make it.

Hope you're all enjoying your long weekend.

If you can't build a two lane round about, then don't waste time or money. If you don't know how to signal in and out, find another route. I love them. Having lived in Edmonton for many years, you get to know them and if you don't know how to use them, you may find yourself hung and quartered. These small one lane traffic circles are nothing but a traffic calmer and traffic hazard.

Thanks Jacob - but it's my son and future daughter - in - law's business. I just provide the free real-estate, free labour and whatever else they need, lol, and I'm happy to do it. They opened Friday evening, were almost sold out Saturday night. My wife went to a wholesaler and picked up 10 more tubs but they still ran out at five o'clock today. They went through something like 160 gallons of ice cream. They're tired...........but it's a happy tired.
Had a bike club drop in yesterday, good thing I'd made up about 50 4" X 4" pucks ( kickstand pads) and had them in a dispenser out there. Had a bunch of nice pick-ups, rods and street rods pop in today.
Last night as the last 2 people were leaving around 10 pm I was sitting on a bench under the lights, watching traffic go past, listening to " Come Sail Away".....and I was suddenly 18 again, sitting on a curb with my buddies at one of our locals.....so cool.

I guess the kids have a pretty good grasp of what they're doing. There were about 8 contestants including Avondale Dairy and according to the on-air personality Good Manners "annihilated" the competition.

If he can get off his lazy ass, he will be driving a red '32 tudor.

 I'll keep an eye out but tell him when he orders his cone to ask Braydon or Suzie to text me, I'm not always out there.

Thanks Rick, they were blown away by the response they received last year. If this year is similar they'll be ecstatic. Everytime I go somewhere I keep getting asked " is the ice cream trailer going to be there this summer?", so I think it'll be busy.
