This is what you do when you are out of school on a cold wintry day. You go Tubing down the front hill at Aunt Angie's house with Ethan. Jake is giving instructions to Ethan with him pulling Matt on the sled. They look as though they are having a blast.
It brought back some wonderful memories of the many coasting parties we had when I was a child. We didn't do the inner tube back then, but we did use things we weren't suppose to do.I can remember going to our cousin's and being told not to sled toward the ditch, which was deep so what did we do, you guess it. We didn't get hurt, but we did have a blast.
Homemade snow ice cream, yummy. Of course, mom always had cookies to go with it. You want to be sure that you picked clean snow.
We lived close enough to town that we always had our town friends coming to our house. Mom always took it in stride, but then she had several brothers and sisters. Of course, dad was an only child except for half-brother and sister. We never got to know them very well. Now with mom's brothers and sisters that was another story. We had a lot of cousin's and always had fun.
How many can remember going to the outside movies in the small towns. The county fairs or as some would call them street fairs. The carnivals that came to town, the horse shows, drive-in movies. When your brother works there, you got in for a very cheap rate.
Don't you miss the olden days, I guess that tells our age, but we had fun. We didn't do the things that kids do now. We didn't destroy people's property.
Well you all have a wonderful day. Stay warm and safe. I am out the door to get my taxes figured, the store, and home. Take care.
