  • Sledding in Indiana

Of all the pictures I have taken over the years, this is one of my favorites. This is Dynamite pulling Jennifer and Maureen, with Warren driving. This was taken 23 or 24 years ago and now these three kids have 10 of their own. Jennifer thinks I should buy a pony so we can take pictures of the grandchildren doing the same thing with the bobsled. In Indiana it’s pretty flat, so if you want to go sledding you’ll have to look hard for a hill or – as we did – just use the pony. I broke Dynamite when I was 14, so he was getting old by the time my kids were playing with him.
