It was a cool October afternoon and we needed a bite before our dinner in Santa Fe. Nothing from Bode's grill next door was quite light enough. We stopped for a single scoop waffle cone.

Walked over from the general store for some ice cream. We ordered a single scoop in a cone, which treated five but didn't have a wrapper and was handed with bare hands and the ice cream wasn't homemade, just regular old Dreyers.
