Re: “Remember the Merrymobiles

Not long ago, I was at a party and ran into a gentleman I hadn't seen in almost 30 years. We chatted some and agreed to meet for lunch at a later date. While enjoying our lunch we reminisced about our youth in the Memphis of the late '50s and early '60s. Of all the things we talked about, nothing drew as great of a response as when I asked him if he remembered the Merrymobiles. His face glowed as he said, "Do I ever!" To a small child then, there was something almost magical about those mobile carousels and the treats they contained. It probably made good business sense to replace them with trucks when they did and of course the ice cream was still the same, but to us, some of the "magic" was gone.
