1948 AND 2011: GLOBAL WARMING.....HMMMM!
"belly flopping" on my steel runner sled. (Note: I could never afford that "Flexible Flyer.") I have closely watched today's kids, and they are all outfitted with that newfangled molded plastic where they sit on their sled and slide down the hill. Belly flopping is much more exciting and far more fun...a running gallop, an airborne leap in the air with our trusty sled, our bodies following close behind. We land on the sled while in motion, the sled's steel runners skimming through the snow at breakneck speed, and we are on an exhilarating and very speedy ride to the bottom of the hill.
