I am looking forward to a few weeks from now when we start gaining time again.
Funny, that's why the kids in our neighborhood all have vid games , I guess. I don't see them out all winter. When we were kids we were dressed up like Eskimos (a la "A Christmas Story") and kicked outdoors until mealtimes.

I love riding my horses in winter. I get so bundled up I can barely move, but they're kinda bundled up, too with all their extra fur so we waddle through the heaps and enjoy the clear, bugless air. I actually took an intense riding lesson in 20 degree weather last winter. Poor instructor froze her buns off while my horse and I were sweatin' up a storm...had to strip down a coupla layers even! Fun! The woodstove afterward wasn't bad either. Winter offers such a great variety of activities indoor and out!

I remember, way back when, we were sooo bundled up and we made all sorts
of squishy noises when we walked.

My DH thinks I look like that when I dress for hunting on a cold day. No hypothermia for me!

I like smelting. We put a shack on in Brunswick and I try to spend 3-4 nights a week down there catching smelts. Sometimes I have a beer too!

Mine were making squishy noises! Never fail, dress them up and they'd have to pee!
I remember my mom bundling us up so thick that we couldn't even move. I have a bunch of old pictures of my sister and I just sitting on a snowbank. We'd sit there for hours till she came and brought us in, we were like winter lawn ornaments out there!

"The Doctor" has many nutritional benefits, you'll be fine I promise.

Fast and furious out there? Which tide and what year was that on? I must have slept through it.
