Hi Sue,

YES! I did used to go sledding at the Golf Course heehee I even mentioned it in this post:

It's a small world isn't it? I will be 57 in June it is quite possible we have come close to having crossed paths if you are around my age! Rival schools and all : )

I love how we can communicate with gals from around the world or around the neighborhood because of blogs and our love for papercrafting! : )

Thanks for "following" me : )
