Gone Skating

I may not get a chance to blog today as my nine-year-old daughter, who’s been so enthralled by the Winter Olympics, has talked me into to taking her ice skating today.  I have a feeling we will both have renewed appreciation for the figure skaters that we’ll watch later tonight after we spend the day falling on our butts.

Congressman Ron Paul could NOT get even five (5) votes from Congress AGAINST the use of nuclear weapons and War on Iran!

We MUST STOP this insanity and March is how many days from now?

Mollie, may you and your daughter enjoy ice skating. It is a wonderful experience. My father used to create our very own private ice skating rink in our back yard, Anchorage, Alaska (1956-1960). He would change the color for my sis and I, with food coloring! We moved from Texas to Alaska before it was part of the US and what a trip when Alaska became a state ~ Texas screamed bloody murder!

Yeah, I went to the skating rink and all I got was this bruise on my butt. But the kid had fun and that's all that really matters. There were hordes of small children (school is out this week here in Seattle) and they were having a blast falling and sliding around all covered in the white slush that piled up before the Zamboni machine (my daughter's favorite part of the ice skating experience) smoothed it all out again. Sometimes the best thing for a mind skidding toward cynicism is hanging out with kids. In small doses, you can't beat 'em for puttin a smile on your face. Well, unless you're Dick "get off my lawn" Cheney.

i grew up next to a park ( elizabeth park in hartford/west hartford. famous for their rose gardens) and learned to ice skate when i was very young. I LOVED it. hope you both had wicked fun. i don't even know if they still skate at the park. certainly not this winter as it hasn't been cold enough in the long run
