Midge and Booker-T walked along the sidewalk to Jake's house. Midge dragged the little sled behind her. Jake met them as they came through the gate at his house.
“Why are you pulling the sled?” asked Jake. “You aren't going downhill again I hope.”
“She wants to pick up some rocks from the pond for Snappy,” said Booker-T.
“The sled was easier to pull in the snow than the little wagon,” said Midge. “I tried to pull the wagon and I kept getting stuck.”
“It will be hard to find rocks in the snow Midge,” laughed Jake. “Why don't you wait til Spring comes or at least all the snow melts.”
“I didn't think of that,” sighed Midge. “I told Snappy I would get him some new rocks. I guess he will understand if I can't find any in the snow.”
