Yeah, but did they sleigh back then?

     "We had a brook on the property and dug a pond that froze over in the wintertime. Kids from all over town would come and clear the snow off the ice, go skating and play ice hockey. They'd go over to the neighbor's property and sleigh through a pathway that went down by my house and halfway down the road." ~Excerpt from POUND RIDGE PAST, 1950s: "Jackie Rodney, Barnegat's Good Neighbor."
