sledding on the farm


Today I got out the old sled to decorate for Christmas.
It's similar to the ones we used growing up.
Yes, that would be me and my brothers & sisters sledding in the early 60's.
I'm the one in the middle.
And that would be the little two-seater outhouse in the background,
with a dusting of snow...
that we never used in the winter. Ok, so maybe if we were desperate.
Sometimes I just want to go home... 
and be a kid again.
Don't you?

we sure did have a good childhood, we were poor, but we didn't know it.

You mean we aren't kids anymore? I always enjoyed taking that long (30 miles was long back then) trip to the farm. Thanks for the memories!

LOVE the sledding photo! And the reminder of how much fun we had sledding in the winter. We had to go farther from home than you did, but we had a blast anyway. It was always such a cold walk home though.
