Do you remember trying to "fly" down a hill in a direction of your choosing? Somehow we managed very nicely. The big boys would run carrying these sleds, then throw themselves onto their bellies atop the sleds so they could fly even faster down the snow-packed runs. Now I slide on a molded plastic sled! Seems safer at my age! These are vintage "flyers" I find, restore and decorate with painted snowmen for my booth in the annual Holly Berry Art & Craft fair. Fresh cedar & hemlock from the woods! Very festive on your front porch!

These four furry raccoons are why we have been bringing in the bird feeders at night. I suspect they are siblings from this past summer. They are very resourceful and should survive the winter well!
Forgive the blurry and foggy photos. The first three were taken in the dark through the double pane glass of the kitchen window. When I went outdoors to try to get a clearer view, they would scamper away, but not too far..... as in the last photo.
And notice that the deck railing is wrapped with holiday lights already. My husband has learned to do this fun chore before the weather gets too cold!

And the protected red Michigan Holly berries are plentiful in the swamps.
