On The Edge... Again

The last time I skated regularly, you needed 2 pair of skates, a scribe and skated patch. Triple jumps were almost unheard of, so were Bielman spins. Twizzles were only done by ice dancers and Ronald Regan was just elected into office.

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!

I Could Have Danced All Night..

 Today I went to a “dance session” at Chandler Ice Den. My very favorite rink in my immediate area. 

I worked on the Fourteen Step and even stated trying to learn the beginning step of the foxtrot.

Lesson tomorrow 🤞 


  1. Hi there, I've recently discovered this blog and I absolutely love it... got a question: what do you use to record your videos and how do you set them up?

    1. Just my phone - on the boards. Sometimes it falls!

  2. Thanks! BTW... I find your blog/youTube channel so inspiring... I'm coming back to skating after about 10 yrs off and I'm on the 'dark side' of 40s with a very healthy fear of falling... so it's nice to see someone over 20 progressing!

    1. I’d give anything to be on the dark side of the 40s!!!!
      Wait till your 61 👵
