Me taking Fluffy for a ride-along 1/1/85
Jodi would come running in to wake me up and get me going, we’d get all bundled up (not quite to the extreme of the little boy in “Christmas Story”, though it did feel like it) and we would go – all – day!
Me with my prize-worthy snowman 12/80
Could not get enough of the stuff! And, I guess still can’t!
But, we had a ball.
We were fortunate enough to have the best plot of land in Illinois for sledding. For those of you who’ve been to (or more likely through) Illinois, you know it is flat. As a pancake. From end to end.
But, we actually lived on a nice little hill that had the BEST driveway for sledding!! Not only was it just the right slope, it had just enough twists and turns... and trees, to keep it exciting. It was awesome.
Jodi and me going out into the great land of snow 12/78
And, when we got snow… we – got – snow!
Jodi sledding down the drive successfully, as I wipe out 1/79
and me doing much better 1/79!
