I am hungry and thirsty and I have this cravings for rootbeer float. I used to go to A&W way back in the Philippines. Now I cannot find any root beer at all or I don't think they drink root beer over here. The following sentences are already done. I have another illustration beside the rootbeer which is a baby in a swimming pool with his salbabida(i forgot how it's called in english-if somebody knows please let me know.) and it is just in the starting process, so, that means you have to visit my blog again if you have the desire to see it. But you are already welcome to drop some comments for the root beer. I would really appreciate it. Kindly click the image for the bigger size.

Anyway, I am a little restless today, maybe it's a good idea that I go out with my husband tonight.

Between the food, drink and relaxing with this weeks word, I am not going to be able to get anything done. Nice job on the Root Beer float--I haven't had one in years and now I want one. "Like a thief in the night" was also fantastic as was the accompanying story.

We don't have many A&W stands here, but you CAN get IBC in brown bottles in the grocery store. Awesome... even comes in diet!! And it's made in Rye Brook, NY... so surely you can get some. Did you call your floats "purple cows?" That's what my Dad called them, but I have NO idea why!

thank you mick and get some root beer!

and s.p.woman-i didn't it is also called purple cows! sometimes, there are sarsaparilla in the asian stores-it's the most similar taste with that of the rootbeer.

i hope you are all having a nice weekend.

I've never tried root beer -its pretty rare in Europe.
I used to love ice cream floats with lemonade or red cola though

nice illo - great job on the shading of the whipped cream (or is that soft-serve ice cream?). 'round my neck of the woods, in addition to the supermarket variety of ice cream, we have braum's. it is only sold in braum's restaurants, not in supermarkets, but they sell it in cartons to take home, too. it's awesome. aah, a scoop of braum's vanilla and some diet a&w rootbeer. yum. must go to braum's now...
