What’s Going On?


SOLSC Day 21

I was driving down the street.

What’s going on.  Look at all of those cars.  Are they giving something away? (This doesn’t look like much but it was the last row of the lot.)


I pulled in and parked.  Then I noticed the people – three lines.  Of course.  The first day of Spring.  Rita’s is giving away a free Italian Ice to anyone who wants one.


Here is a sign I have been waiting for.


Look at the lines.



Of course we got in line.  As we got closer to the window I checked out their flavors of the day.


They had cherry, Kathy’s favorite.  That is what she got.   For a dollar we also added custard to the ice. What did I want. Lemon is always good.  Of course, I also like pineapple.  I never tried the blood orange or the Florida orange.  They are both possibilities.

Here is my choice – key lime.


Happy Spring!

  1. Definitely worth a wait in a line. The signs that Spring is really hear warm my heart – even if they come frozen at Ritas.

    Wonderful sign! I just wish our weather was a little more receptive!

  3. This looks delicious! My daughter was stopping by Dairy Queen after a meeting last night for free cone day. Love the sign – ice – custard – happiness!

    Love Rita’s way of celebrating spring… Love how it draws people together, and no line grumbling when waiting for a delicious freebie.

  5. Yes! You can always count on Rita’s to announce that Spring is here! Gelatis are the best!

    It looks yummy. I started salivating as I looked at that green topped with custard. Here’s to a continuing love affair!
