On The Edge... Again
Fast Forward 32 years. Starting January 2, 2012, I am back on the ice doing something else that was unheard of .... Adult Figure Skating. We had "coffee club", which was like adult swim, but there was no opportunity for testing or competition.
Update 2021. It has now been 9 years since I began adult skating. I have not competed since 2016 , but my blog is still going. My YouTube channel has over 1.76k subscribers. That’s just crazy!

More Lessons More Progress ...
The Axel lift and the Lutz lift are really giving us trouble. We keep saying to each other "it's not you .. it's me" !!! I am sure it's a little of both. We are committed to getting it right. I have seen ladies bigger than me get up there... so I know it can be done! Also Hank is pretty tall. Looks great on ice, but it actually seems to be harder to do the lifts.
Today we had some lessons both on and off ice. We were both disappointed in our "performance" during the lessons. Typical.
