6-7 - my toes have always been my down fall to cold weather - I can work out in all day - no matter how cold it gets - or toes get cold then ole Doc is done , no matter how may pairs of socks I put on . lol
good story visiting Pa's 6-7
Glad you liked my story, FarmerDoc
...an easy one, to relate to.
hates his ears getting froze to...just as bad as his feet
- I'm on a roll, this morning Andrew
is bringing his Lexus RX350 over this afternoon / go to garage, and put on new winter tires...plus change taillight bulb & oil change.
- so dad staying home today, and head to garage this morning...exhaust leak on 4Runner
- yesterday, plumber installed a Costco laundry sink...real nice job, dad supervised while BabyBear
was at work
- so Beau
primed the main ManCave room & cut in the color 50 years ago, Toes story time...
- only a few times, living on the farm...were we able to ice skate, on a frozen field
- one such day, the neighbors field ice was arena smooth (like glass)
- so we walked a 1/3 of a mile, to their place...with skates & hockey sticks
- played hockey for 1.5 hours straight, it was a freek'en blast
- went to their farmhouse, to their back woodshed...removed the skates
- my toes so froze, I could not feel them on the ends of my limbs
Now we have to get home & walking with zero feelings in our feet, was to difficult.
- so we made it to the Hwy. and hitchhiked with our thumbs up (we were grade8 age)
- within 5 minutes, an old couple stopped to pickup Twin67 & Beau
- it was a chore, getting into the back & fitting in 2 hocket sticks...due to length
- after we finally closed the rear doors, old guy said..."where you lads going"
- Larry said, "you can drop us off, @ 2nd farmhouse up the next hill"
- if looks could kill, his wife in the passenger seat...gave me a WTF stare
- like really, you lazy little brats LOL 40 years ago, Ears story time...
- at College and a big snow storm in process // College announced closure
- so Twin67 & Beau played table tennis, for 3 hours straight...in the gym
- problem was, when we went to leave the parking lot, there was 1.5 ft. of snow buildup, at the exit...from the snow plows, cleaning off the streets some
- about 10 cars were stuck, in the lot // so a dozen people made a pack
- everyone helps get a car out & park it on the street // but everyone has to come back, and help the other, till every car is out
- the pushing cars, was much easier with a team of young people
- but Larry
forgot his warm toque, and my ears were froze off
- we finally got out & home to our College apartment...in our 1966 Valiant
^^ Now, every vehicle I drive has a knotted toque in the glove box & one on the passenger headrest.
- never hurts to drive prepared, in the harshest of winter blizzard driving
