Leif, Peter W, Peter A. in the snow in Sachsen bei Ansbach, Germany - January 1979 - Age 4
We lived in the village of Sachsen bei Ansbach in Germany for two years. Our house was on a big hill which wasn't yet built full of homes, and there was a long, fairly steep slope that was great for sledding and learning to ski. In January 1979, Peter W. started teaching Leif how to ski there.
At the far side of that hill was a woods, which yielded wild blueberries, raspberries and blackberries in the summer, but was lovely for walks in the snow. Leif thought snow must taste good, it looked so pretty.
He enjoyed being out in it in those days, before the asthma that developed while he was in the army made it hard for him to breathe.
