A (very) chilly walk through the park this evening. The city had their 34th annual Winter Carnival today – sleigh rides, free hot dogs and maple taffy in the snow. In the past, the city would design lovely badges (with pins) for those attending this event. (I have a box full of these dating back to the 1980s when our daughter was small). I am sure for safety (and legal) reasons that tradtion has been discontinued. How did we ever manage to grow up safely in the 1950 and 1960s!
