Last year (2013) we had a winter something like we used to have when I was a kid (1964 – ’68). I don’t know what the “official” snowfall was, suffice to say, a lot. Toward the end of the season I was talking with Mikey and he suggested this year I open a “snow maze.” Now, just how stupid is that? However, his idea held great appeal for me and I lent a lot of thought to it over the year. So I contacted my sign maker last month and this is what we came up with:
Right now (Dec. 23, 2014) it sits in my family room; no snow – and it’s killing me! I now can appreciate how ski resorts feel when there is no snow. I am losing a great deal of money!
Do I think I’ll have folks walking in my front year? Oh, hell yes! And probably at $5.00 each. And I will have my camera ready!
Last week I decided to create “gift cards” to fill the gap. They have been a real “hit!” I took 3 over to Noah’s school and gave them to the receptionist. I told her that I wanted to give the “gift cards” to Sister Pat (principal), Karen (secretary) and Mrs. Rogers (the boy’s teacher) – and I handed them to her, upside down. She went on to tell me ‘how kind I was,’ as I began to walk away. Then I her her burst out laughing!
