Moonlight Sledding






Here are some pictures of the snow that fell on Joe Street in Oklahoma Friday night. It was mostly ice with a little snow on top. We had to warm up the car a loooonnngg time before I drove it Saturday. We all got out just after sunset and played for a few minutes in the road, pushing CassiJo around on a plastic box lid with a shop broom. We didn't have anything that resembled a sled to be found or any rope, so we improvised !

  6. It's so much fun to watch kids enjoying themselves in the snow. Especially from a thousand miles removed.

  7. We once used a kitchen tray ... you know the type, that you collect your food on at a cafeteria ... as a sled, when we were staying at a ski resort. It slid down the hill really well, but at night, in the dark, the ski lifts don't run ... it was a long walk up !!!
    Looks like you guys were having a ball. Snow can be so much fun.
    Take care, Meow

  9. well, back in the day, we used a bedpan. and then we tied a rope on the bumper, and yanked out our loose teeth, not only that, but when we had the flu, we still had to walk 5 miles to school in flip flops, because thats all we could afford at the five and dime.

  15. The last picture is funny. Looks like he's the nightly street sweeper who comes around and sweeps up all the kids off the streets.

  21. P.S. please go to my blog today and get the addys for the different gov't. officials listed there. Then write to beg them to do something concerning the sale to Dubai Ports World of the security contract for 7 of the ports in the United States. This is a very serious issue which directly affects those of us that live in the Bay Area here.

    (Joe already did).

  22. You did a fine job at my blog. Well, except for the candle wax answer.
    Your hubby was silly, as usual. He had some very clever answers.
