Waiting

I spotted this guy waiting patiently outside the Dutch Dreams ice cream parlour which has been a fixture in Toronto for over 30 years. The line-ups often are really long but it was early in the day when I went by so he won't have too long a wait. I hope they got him some ice cream and not a coffee!

Sweet place and sweet dog. Love the sign and those old milk cans. What a blast from the past! I guess Torontoians eat a lot of ice cream?

I see they had to chain down the car hop so she wouldn't "skate away". I like the multicolored milk cans. Oh, I think I spied a chain through them also. At least the pooch is free to roam.

My eyes a going - didn't realise you meant the dog at first... That's a wonderful shop front though! Very retro.

The busty babe on the roller skates brought back an instant flashback to the days when I used to go to the A&W and have my order delivered to my car on a tray by one of these chicks. Just saying. :)

Why, RedPat, you modeled for this display!

Oh, this is wonderful - where did they move? The last time I drove past, about 6 weeks ago, it was closed.
I used to live a block away from there - yes long lines!
