Where I sailed across the glassy, slippery ice with complete glee and
freedom from heavy boots, soggy sweaters, frozen mittens and rosy
frosted cheeks. When the ice became too thin for safe travels, my
parents would pull me behind the pick up truck, while snow and
wind swirled about me like a small tornado. I loved it all, every
My sled is long gone, where I do not know. It was no ordinary sled,
it was magical, at least to a youngster. For years I
have been looking for a sled and just when I thought I had found
the perfect sled I found fault with it. Until I found this one.
I found this Dano 80 sled in a antique shed-not shop, there is a huge
difference. I literally crawled over and moved all sorts of ancient
cobwebby treasures to reach this sled.
My sled traveled the long distance with me in my car from
Tupelo Mississippi to our home in Texas. I feel as though I have
found a long lost friend.
I think there is some sort of a Christmas magic happening because
the week we arrived home we had snow. Of course this sled will
live in quiet retirement, there won't be any wild rides on icy ponds.
But it will be decorated with care each Christmas and provide many
warm memories for me.
Naturally, I had to take my Christmas sled outside because I just
do not know if there will ever be snow at Christmas time again.
I hope to see you back tomorrow for more glimpses into our home.
It is the beginning of Tis The Season Christmas Tour and I am
day one of the tour, our door is open I can't wait for your visit!
