So we were up early one morning and had a couple hours of ok tempratures so we decided to clean out the Chrysler Imperial.

Found this interesting little package in the trunk that had been shipped to the original owner a very long time ago from Chicago to Albuquerque because postage was only $0.15.

Couldn't figure out what it was but thought it was a very nice grade of stainless steel wool or something similar.

As we removed the contents from the package the label fell out. It is a product called Magic Ice Carpets from The Pecks company which was located at 932 East 50th Street in Chicago Illinois.

Seems the idea was a type of traction device. You took the sheet of steel wire and you laid it down on the snow wedging it up against your back tire and then took off slowly across the ice or the snow.

Feels neat to know Louise had this in her trunk for this many years.Click image for larger version

No camping updates as we don't get much camping time in the summer in AZ.

Work still getting in the way (but very glad to have work) not really complaining our time will come.

Love this time of year here, even more since being on this forum. Our weather is finally getting manageble and outdoor projects are calling. I know some of you are starting to button up for the season.

Been working on crafts and thought I'd share some snowflakes with you. Since we don't get any of our own. And no, I don't want any of you with lots of white fluffy powdery stuff to send any my way.

Sell them, HOPEFULLY, at a craft festival I participate in.

And then the new owners will prop them against the house for the holidays, hang them from the eves or trees. Set them in the entryways.

Very creative, I like them. Nice use of the recycled wood as well. Imagine how great they would look great hanging from trees with some lights shining on them.

Had a great weekend and crossed a major project off the to do list.

With friends, scaffolding and power tools we deconstructed our ginormous interior fireplace.
