I'm pretty sure that I heard Toboggan in reference to a knit cap before

I learned that it also meant some kind of sled-type thing. In Mississippi

the only sled-type things we were familiar with were trays dragged out of

kitchens at the first sign of ice or snow. Even now I don't think I've

ever seen a real sled except in pictures. But we had some great home-made

skate-cars, which I guess could be categorized as "sled-type things." We

used them for racing down hills on streets. It's a miracle that any of us

survived to adulthood.
