King romping in the snow

February 12, 2012

 
     Five years ago today we became grandparents again. Our son and daughter-in-law had a daughter. What a special day that was 😮 Once again another little girl melted my heart.
 
     The snow is deep again and the temperature is cold, in the twenties. I like the snow still even in my advancing age. I guess all of us boys love to play in the snow. King, our puppy is no exception. He loves it.
 
     I plowed the drive, fed the animals and slipped and slid while I did it. King raced and chased and ate snow until he was an icicle. He still didn’t want to come in .. boy, do I remember those days!
 
     I remember pulling a sled while my boys rode and ate snow. I remember another time toboganing at Andover Hill, we all had a blast but were almost frozen solid by the time we quit. Later as my boys grew, I remember them snow surfing on their sleds being pulled behind the empty manure spreader. The horses lasted much longer than I could.
 
     These snowy days take me back to fun days and playing in the snow. I will always remember them fondly. The neighborhood kids and I would play until dark. I am sure the frozen jeans and wet mittens were a bother to my mom, but she never let it show… I guess she knew that “every little boy loves snow!”
