During yesterday’s sermon, while running down a list of stressful things people deal with during the summer season, I mentioned that this will be the first summer in my lifetime without Blue Bell Ice Cream. I referenced an article in the current issue of Texas Monthly that quoted a writer who claimed people outside our state just don’t appreciate the crisis:

“We don’t buy anything else! It’s not that we’ve lost a favorite brand; we have no ice cream in Texas!”

And then Scott Sherwood sent me the above picture yesterday afternoon.
