Or maybe it is the use of the wheelchair that limits how far I can travel in the snow in my wheelchair, not more than 1". The most fun times in the winter is for the kids.
It is good for play, as we have a hill in the back yard which is good for sledding -------->
<-----Of course, all play and no work can make for a dull day, so time for Kid2 to pull out the Toro and clear a path to the road. No gain, no pain.
So, somebody has to have fun during this season, so we'll leave to the children to have the real winter fun, and leave us adults to the less pleasurable winter items such as skidding on the road and paying the higher winter utilities...
We did purchase a new Christmas Tree (not 'holiday tree', no sir) at Target on Sunday, but have not unfolded it yet, but did purchase LED tree lights, which are supposed to offset their much higher purchase costs with 82% lower electricity costs - our only contribution to the very secular 'Green Christmas'. Sigh, I used to consider the only green at
this time of the year the tree...but these LED lights are much brighter!
And so amidst the frozen moisture outside now (back to normal snow), I offer a glimpse into the summer of '92 or '93 and our blonde young'ins, Kid1 and Kid2. It looks warmer than today. Kid1 will be back for the college break next Wednesday. Santa had better get busy, I think...
