When we were children in Hazelton the winters were cold, the gravel streets were covered in snow and the snow was smooth and hard enough to skate on. There was a streetlight close to our home so Mom could keep an eye on us. There was very little traffic at night so it was safe to play street hockey. We used a pair of Dad's gumboots for goal posts. We found buried horse manure in the snow, we called them "horse buns". Our hockey sticks were scrap wood nailed together.

I actually had someone in my life who didn’t use profanity but she came close when she said, “Horse Pucky!”. Obviously horse buns were commonly used in my young days.
