I agree with Jackie, every summer that I came to El Paso from California, I would look forward to hanging out with my uncle Tony and Robert and Jackie working in the milk truck selling juices. We would always see who could sell the most. Great times and that was the high light of my summer. Thank you uncle Tony, RIP. Love you. Watch over us.

I loved riding in the Prices milk truck when we would go sell the fruit drinks over the summer and getting to pick any kind of ice cream we wanted.
