Hurry up and take that picture please Granny!


This is another picture from my winter vacation in Chicago the week before Christmas. My oldest grandson was a little concerned when he first saw these signs on the sidewalks, but he soon got used to them. I did actually get hit by a small piece of falling ice right before I took this picture, but that was the only time. This was my grandson's first time seeing snow and he got to see a lot of it. He made quite a few snow angels when we were playing in the park, but didn't manage get the hang of making a good snowman. Maybe next time!

That is a funny photo.

What do they expect people to do? Walk around looking up? Then they would probably put up a sign that says "Watch your step."

Then they would probably add a sign that says "Stay indoors."

Ah, hurry up indeed!! What a delightful capture, Lois, and a giggle to start my day!! I'm glad he didn't get hit by any ice! I was always better at making snow angels than I was snowmen, but my kids got to be pretty good since they grew up in Montana and had lots of snow to practice with!! Have a lovely week!!

We have signs like that up here too, and from now through to spring, you do have to watch for falling ice.

That's so cute, especially right next to the sign.

Seeing and playing in snow for the first time is so fun for kids!

A perfect winter photo, Granny!

I haven't seen signs like this that have the address printed on them, though. Obviously a permanently recurring problem!

Snow can definitely be fun, but I'm glad I haven't had too much of it this year.

Yes it can be very cold in Chicago, even in summer when I was there the wind was rather strong and cold from the lake. Cute picture of ypur grandson.

When I first saw the picture I thought, "That can't be Tallahassee!"

Of course you were in Chicago. I spent many happy times downtown on State Street. Back in the 50s (I was in college) the first-run movie theaters also included live shows, with the likes of Jo Stafford, Rudy Vallee, etc. Great fun.

If you're grandson had not seen snow before I'll bet he had a blast! But now you'll have to take him north every winter! :)

Yes, it is dangerous. I saw a whole roof slide off and take most of the eve-spouting with it. It made a horrible racket and would have buried this little guy.

ooooooops.

Hurry up, and keep walking:)
