|The youngest child's hair was extremely fine and the static electricity made it do odd things.|
"Hey, Uncle Joe....want to go sledding?" my nephew asked.
"Sure. Why not" I said.
I thought I was going to be able to stand around at the top of the hill, flirt with the pretty girls and push the kids over the edge.
The kids had other ideas.
I was supposed to ride down the hill with them.
Then I was supposed to pull the sled back up the hill for them.
Then I was supposed to let them ride in the sled as I pulled it up the hill.
Nephew had no problems with it. He had two of them in the inner tube and pulled them up the hill and wasn't out of breath.
It was all I could do to pull one of them up the hill and I was gassed.
A sad reminder that 60 year-old lungs cannot perfuse oxygen the way a 30 year-old set can.
