Hello and welcome to the home of the original ‘Ice Cream Diaries’. What follows are 25 episodes that record for posterity (mostly mine) those first days and months, the ‘gestation period’ I like to call it, and early days of my start-up adventure – Mt. Tom’s Homemade Ice Cream, Inc.
Some of the stories are a little hokey and dated and others probably a bit dull, but I hope they still give you a sense of the excitement and fun that was had building the foundation of the ice cream and candy shop you see before you today. I haven’t had time to add the pics that were deleted when I moved everything from it’s original hosting site. Perhaps a project for a snowy day in February..
In any event, thanks for dropping in, and I hope you enjoy.
It’s been a great ride so far, and although it’s nice to be able to enjoy the fruits and satisfaction of Mt. Tom’s success today, those were exciting times, and I’m happy I was able to capture a bit of the energy of those days here.
You can also find entry number 26 through last week’s at the Ice Cream Diaries site.
