I finally drug myself to the rink today. It was one of the first hot days in Spokane. 85 degrees. I was driving with the convertible top down and the rink didn't even seem that cold today!
Much to my surprise and delight; I found 4 other adult skaters there. Some of them I may have mentioned before.
1: Jill (ex - Holiday on Ice skater from 1958)
2: John (retired doctor and recreational skater
3: Father Joe (retired Catholic priest and recreational skater)
4: Cary (ex competitor and Holiday on Ice circa 1970's and is skating therapeutically "doctors orders"
I was actually the YOUNGSTER of all of us!
