He Screamed for Ice Cream

leave a comment »

One of the most popular places on the Penn State campus is the Berkey Creamery. In fact no visit to PSU is complete without stopping by to get a cone or dish of ice cream.

The Creamery sells other dairy products and other items, but ice cream is No. 1. On a a football Saturday there will e a long line out the door waiting their turn to buy a scoop.

They’ll even pack a half-gallon or two in dry ice for you to take home. We’ve done that many times.

On a hot summer day, nothing beats getting a dish of your favor flavor and eating it on the patio outside as this man is doing. The color of his ice cream seems to match the color of his shorts.

Another Penn State Graduate and the Nittany Lion

leave a comment »

The limestone Nittany Lion statue  is probably the most photographed location on the campus of Penn State University at University Park. Thousands of Penn State graduates have had a photograph made of themselves standing with the lion.

It was not graduation day when I happened upon this mother taking making an image of her daughter posing with the lion.

Perhaps they wanted to make their image on a day when not as many people would be waiting in line for their turn with the lion.
