|Snowshoes ready for use in Feb. 2007|
Last Tuesday three of us on the committee lugged a collection of old snowshoes and seven heavy bags of old mukluks around the basement of Muriel's apartment block downtown. 43 pairs of traditional snowshoes were being kept in her storage lockers, all numbered. We laid them out across the floor of the squash court, inspected them carefully, and decided to keep the ones in best condition apart, 19 pairs. I made a note of their numbers.

Afterwards, Muriel, who has spent half her life in Bermuda where snow is unheard of, served tea while we talked. We have plenty of ideas about where we could go snowshoeing.
