They had only two ingredients; usually vanilla ice cream and coke, but sometimes root beer or such. This was such a simple thing, yet where can they be found today? Certainly not in the big city. Maybe in a quaint little town in the sticks with a soda fountain. Anyway, the other night my wife, who is from Iran, and has never heard of or seen a float in her life, decided to put some vanilla ice cream in her coke. I asked her where she learned to do that; that I had not seen such a thing in years. She says she just thought about doing it. I told her how incredibly popular this was fifty years ago and immediately made myself one. Dang! These things sure were good! We have had one every night now for the last four nights.And to top things off, Persi cleans the ice cream off the inside of the glasses as best he can get his head in. Now we have three addicts.
