Toot! Toot! Not like a regular car horn, this sound attracted the neighbors from several houses away. Children ran and got to the van before the driver could come to a complete stop. The adults who were home were slow to arrive as the doors were thrown open on the rear of the van.
Oooh! The children squeezed in closer to get a look. The driver pulled out the first drawer. The aroma was so tantalizing some of the children were dizzy. Not many people had enough money to purchase the wares. It was enough to see and smell the delights.
These were poor people living in rural areas. For some, walking was their only transportation. The truck brought doughnuts, cupcakes, birthday cakes bread and rolls to the neighborhood. Oh, the lucky ones who were tasting the bakery delights that night!
