Eye Witness No. 96: Nothing Stops the Scoot: various shots of scoot manoeuvring on ice, snow, water. Various interior shots of homestead kitchen, family around table, eating and studying plans of scoot. Shot of young boy lying at foot of stairs presumably injured, parents rushing to him and debating the why's and wherefore's of boy's sudden "injury". Humourous shot of young child in home-made ice boat, sails made out of pieces of cardboard, coaxing the fickle wind and the reluctant ice boat to get a move on. The boat moves but strictly because of the efforts of the rider, who jerks the sled forward an inch at a time.
