Creamies, creamees, creemies . . . there are all sorts of spellings in Vermont for soft-serve ice cream. It is a huge occasion in the spring when the Barton Pharmacy opens their ice cream window. Here Wingnut (grandson) has his first creamie of the summer.
Here he is waiting for his "baby sized" creamie. We only order baby size because they are so big. They also cost only $1 (no tax). If hard ice cream, the baby size is two big scoops.
Wingnut waits for his change.
Here he poses near my car in front of the pharmacy.
The Barton Pharmacy is in the Pearce Block, one of the historic original buildings in Barton. They have a full service soda fountain (yes, just like back in the fifties) and the only pharmacy within 30 miles. Also in the Pearce Block is Catherine M.'s antique store.
