This is a German postcard..I really like the art work. The colors are so vibrant. The children are really having fun on their sleds. Being a Southern California native, I never did much sledding....once when we visited our grandmother in Spokane, Wa, we did sled. Grandma went out into the garage and pulled out an old sled, something like these....there was a steep road behind her house where I and my little brother tried it out.....the road was icy and we went all the way down onto the main road before we realized it....I was in front and drove the sled into the bank rather than going into traffic...then it took forever to trudge back up the hill, slipping on the ice...we both decided it wasn't worth it....
The second time was just a few years ago when we visited our Iowa family...there was deep snow and we all decided to go with the boys over by the high school as it was a great place to sled. Mom had some sleds in her garage that we used......the boys loved it and went over and over again..Matt even made a friend.....I decided to go and flew down the hill which was fun by myself and then again with Alan...but it was so cold, about 5 degrees above zero..I ended up in the car..my hands and feet nearly froze or so I thought...
