My husband and I have only been in Appomattox for 5 years, and we need to have explained to us why it would take so long to “investigate” and do research on a “food” truck that sells ice-cream and “investigating” and “researching” six picnic tables.

This is a much needed service to our town as we all enjoy ice cream. So I would like to suggest that we all go to Iceland’s Ice-cream and take our table and chairs and enjoy a much-needed social outing while we wait for the “investigation” and “research” to be completed.
