The Big Olaf

Speaking of childhood memories…is anyone reading this in the San Diego, CA area? When I lived there – well before Balboa Park was coined “Pedophile Park” – there was a cool ice cream shack on the beach. I don’t remember the name of the place, but they had “The Big Olaf.” It was a waffle cone (the first of it’s kind in my mind) overflowing with ice cream, nuts, fudge, whipped cream, and a cherry. The owners put a picture of me with one of the cones in the window with the title, “Little Olaf with the Big Olaf.” Clever. I’d love to know if the place is still around, or even if they went commercial or something. Somehow I doubt my picture has made it the last twenty-some-odd years.
