There were traces of snow mixed with the mountain rain today (Sacramento got over four inches in the last forty-eight hours). It reminded me that snowmobile season is on its way, and that we are running out of time to prepare our winter schedule.
Remember days gone by
when we knew we were immortal?
If danger ever threatened
we escaped through some strange portal.
Meeting challenges with a smile,
we laughed and always won.
Everything was an adventure,
Victory so much fun.
Yet we did get wiser,
more selective with what we did.
and analyzing much too closely
what could make us skid
Off the more familiar road.
Did wisdom change our style?
Let’s snowmobile one more time,
and then we’ll bide awhile.
Enjoy the upcoming season, everyone. Spring will be here before we know it.
