Why did you go and spend all that money when you could have bought an empty box?

- signs were posted, but that didn't matter on a Sunday night
- the toboggan got real frigin unsafe, at the accelerated rate I was descending the steep hill @ and it would not slow down either
- trying to pound my heels into the hard packed snow, was useless as brakes
- looked like fun, until the maple snow board became a totally unsafe weapon, in the hands of 13 year old's

LOL Beau...

When I was a kid in Southern Michigan, tobogganing and sledding were daily events during the winter. The amount of snow we got was ridiculous.

So... My father had a Simplicity tractor. He would put wheel weights and chains on it. (Mostly so he could plow our very long and steep driveways) When we came down the steep, long hill he would rope us up and pull us to the top.

I still have the Flexible Flyer that we used in the 60's. It is a 3 person sled. Made by the farm equipment manufacturer Planet Junior. I also have my mother's sled from the 20's that I used as a kid. It was rebuilt 60 years ago by a nice neighbor. It is not safe to use as the rear runners are not recurve, so a loose sled running backwards down hill was basically 2 daggers looking for a victim. Ugh!

Occasionally, he would tow 5 or 6 of our sleds two miles to our local pharmacy for hot chocolate!

What fun.

STJ!

Grand story STJ - and nobody wore helmets, back than.

In public school, Beau went to the arena every weekend / for public skating.
- and our favorite sport outside / waiting for the ice to open up
- grab a car or truck's rear bumper (out front) & get a "free pulled"
- sliding on your snow boots...a half block, down the road
- walk back & wait for another innocent driver, to drive past the front arena doors

When Kelly can't find 1 specific toy, among 40 or so...in her toy box.

^^ Yes, she must pull out the Toy Box / dump it / & scatter her Toys, across the floor.
- all @ 11:00 at night... she was one determined girl, to find the right one

Amazing--I miss one day on the CT and there are around 100 new posts to catch up--I give up...

Portland weather--can't match the temperatures for Mel but it's definitely cold her--26 degrees when I got up at 6:00 ish am. And just saw a forecast that said we were now at 31 degrees. Bright sun, blue skies--and east wind--that's what's keeping it so cold. But there is hope--the forecaster also said we should warm up to what passes for normal soon (we've been around 1o degrees lower than normal for most of February. Paying for the warm January.

LOL! you won't catch me going to see a film on climbing--I really only like mountains at a distance--I love Mt Hood gracing th3e view east in Portland--it's really the quintessential mountain--in shape and size as well as having snow at least at the very top all year. Spectacular on sunney winter days like today.

I'm not claustrophobic, I'm not fond of bridges (fortunately since I've lived a bunch of places that had bridges--Seattle, Portland--the left hand one, Sacramento--those three you can't get away from a bringe--big rivers in all of them.

But when it comes to actual fear of heights--I don't know--I used to refinish (varnish) sailboat masts--they ranged from 30 feet to an 80 footer on a 12 Meter--but doing that you are in a boatswains (bosun's) chair --firmly enclosed and fastened into it--you couldn't fall out even if you were upside down. And on big masts you generally have a tender to make sure you don't get stuck many feet above the deck because something bad happened to the lines in the block and tackle you are going up and coming down on.

But standing on things like observation platforms to look far, far down is not my idea of fun--I don't even really like glass walled elevators (or any elevato4rs but I'm not longer willing to walk up or down 22 floors just to not have to deal with an elevator.

I don't like flying--my technique is to sleep through flights--but it's not so much fear as the fact that I spent my childhood being motion sick on anything that moved.

And I don't like cold weather and I'm definitely sick of this winter--how many days until spring Denny?

Auntie Bug who is crabby this morning...

I'm cold.

Toying seriously with curling up under the covers with a good book and a snack of some sort. Maybe hot chocolate....

And as always happens, the moment I think of dragging myself up out of my chair, the cat comes and curls up on my lap for a nap. I wonder how he knows?

Portland weather--can't match the temperatures for Mel but it's definitely cold her--26 degrees when I got up at 6:00 ish am. And just saw a forecast that said we were now at 31 degrees. Bright sun, blue skies--and east wind--that's what's keeping it so cold. But there is hope--the forecaster also said we should warm up to what passes for normal soon (we've been around 1o degrees lower than normal for most of February. Paying for the warm January.

LOL! you won't catch me going to see a film on climbing--I really only like mountains at a distance--I love Mt Hood gracing th3e view east in Portland--it's really the quintessential mountain--in shape and size as well as having snow at least at the very top all year. Spectacular on sunney winter days like today.

I'm not claustrophobic, I'm not fond of bridges (fortunately since I've lived a bunch of places that had bridges--Seattle, Portland--the left hand one, Sacramento--those three you can't get away from a bringe--big rivers in all of them.

But when it comes to actual fear of heights--I don't know--I used to refinish (varnish) sailboat masts--they ranged from 30 feet to an 80 footer on a 12 Meter--but doing that you are in a boatswains (bosun's) chair --firmly enclosed and fastened into it--you couldn't fall out even if you were upside down. And on big masts you generally have a tender to make sure you don't get stuck many feet above the deck because something bad happened to the lines in the block and tackle you are going up and coming down on.

But standing on things like observation platforms to look far, far down is not my idea of fun--I don't even really like glass walled elevators (or any elevato4rs but I'm not longer willing to walk up or down 22 floors just to not have to deal with an elevator.

I don't like flying--my technique is to sleep through flights--but it's not so much fear as the fact that I spent my childhood being motion sick on anything that moved.

And I don't like cold weather and I'm definitely sick of this winter--how many days until spring Denny?

Auntie Bug who is crabby this morning...
15 Aunt B. That doesn't mean Mother Nature won't jack with us.



We are going to get through this!

I am also anxious for Spring, so I can stop buying as many absurdly priced bales of hay.

Denny's Random Question on a Random Day!

What would be a good cheap type of carpet to replace my old carpet with? Which the cats are tearing up. They tear carpet up worse than the dogs! Might as well get prepared for another new one, after the new one.

However, Lily sheds more than the two cats put together. It currently has some sort of short, shag something or other. I was thinking about the, granny looking, flat schitt.

No matter what, I will eventually need a new Bissell.

Any opinions?

That looks photo shopped to me!

You probably slathered one of her toys with peanut butter. Threw it back in the box, shook it around and then dumped it out.

Ran back to the couch on two good legs and plopped down, just so you could take a one armed picture.

By the way!

How is your wrist doing?

No WAY Lil Sis - I'll let you know SP- Kelly was determined to find / just the right toy.
- and she made Dad, put them all away / so Mom wouldn't see them mess she made, in the morning
- little Fur-kid was gonna have a wee-tantrum, if Beau didn't react immediately, to her spontaneous needs

Skilled Wrist & Arm Specialist is seeing PapaBear, on Friday afternoon / blue cast will probably be cut off.
- so I'm on the med, extremely well
- considering it was broke through (for 6 days), prior to going into Emergency

Bedtime and Kelly just disappeared, so my clue to toss in the towel tonight.
- nighty/night all
