As a side note, I was probably the perfect child for my mom. In the winter on weekends or snow days or Christmas holidays, she’d drive me to the local ski slope and drop me off at 8:30 a.m., give me change for lunch then pick me up at 5:00 p.m......I wasn’t at home to bug her and she knew where I was all day...

We had a large cemetery a block away (overlooking the meadows, with a view of the NYC skyline); when our cousins would visit and the house was filling up with kids my father would literally tell us to “go play in the cemetery”. I don’t think fathers do that anymore. Like you, my mother had to come looking for us to get us home; we would have stayed out as long as could see to play. When we were younger and played much closer to home, she actually got a dinner bell; after a few embarrassing moments infront of the neighborhood my older siblings made sure she couldn’t find it again.

I’ve never been skiing, but it looks like fun (we have some small slopes in northern NJ near the NY border). Some friends that did it regularly in high school stopped soon after; they complained about problems with their knees (which I nver really thought about).
