    Winter fun

        I have no idea where my dad got the toboggan, but one day we saw a large wooden toboggan hanging in our garage. It was tied by ropes and was high enough so my brother and I couldn’t get it down. We knew that a toboggan was like a big sled and we were anxious to use it. There were plenty of hills to try it out, as we lived very close to Lake Michigan and the many sand dunes, but we had to wait for dad to initiate the activity.
