dumpster find of the week: a sled

Did I get this from Sperrmüll (that’s German for “big trash left out on the curb”) in Frankfurt or in Mainz? I can’t remember now, but I remember being excited to find it. And it’s in perfect condition except one tiny wooden bit that’s been broken off—probably the reason it was tossed in the first place. Well PISHAW. We know how to fix broken little wooden bits, and because we’re willing to do so, we now have a sweet old-school sled. Though I do remember the plastic saucer sleds being more unpredictable and speedy, which is always a plus when you’re a little kid with a quick healing time.

Have you been sledding yet this year?

  1. …and here I was thinking you had found yourself a nice baby bathtub and potty set, LOL. I never would have guessed it was a sled. I enjoy hearing all about the new baby!

  2. Paula: Oh hell yeah. If only we’d gotten some damn sled snow this winter. Though I shouldn’t say that just as I’m enjoying the start of spring, the weather might be listening…

  3. Ah, so that’s what happened. LOL I love that old fashioned type of sled. What a great find!
