Hi Tony:)

In the words of the song "Oh yes I remember it well"

I lived in a small spread out village in Somerset though come to think of it the river bridge was the county border if you stood on top of the bridge you had a foot in Somerset and the other in Devon

But back to topic Snow

Any way us kids all had a great time we all gathered at the top of the hill on outskirts to make and roll a massive ball of snow down the hill this became the body a smaller one made the head twigs made arms and feet someone would "Borrow" Dads hat oh dear what a commotion that sometimes caused we could never see what the fuss was about Then we'd sledge down the hill usually on purloined tin trays or similar after which a great game of snowballs would warm us all up it was the one time of the year us kids all played together without any fighting

Happy Days eh :D :D
