It started this morning around 11:00 am. I'll called my nephew Charlie and asked if he wanted to go sledding. His reply, "I was just getting ready to call you to see if you wanted to go." I told him I'd pick him up in ten minutes. My 18-year-old daughter, Kristin, her boyfriend, Cody and his sister, Jessica joined us. We found the perfect spot. It was in the cow pasture and had a few brier bushes and sink holes, but if you were raised on a farm - this kind of stuff is expected and accepted when sledding. The cows were very curious and watched us with their big round eyes. Two of them actually started to follow us, and looked at us with questioning faces, as if to ask, "May we have a turn." There are just some things that happen in the country that seem natural to me but very strange to most of the world.
