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.

Someone actually took my picture while I was skating ... and it wasn't my husband!

Fun in the stands

Arriving at the rink for my first Adult Nationals

I was the first one on the ice (in sneakers) on Monday!

Taking down the hockey nets for our TOSSIES

At the JFK Memorial Museum in Hyannis.  I guess Joe Kennedy was into skating and had a rink in Hyannis where the Hyannis Youth and Community Center rinks now are

Things are getting REAL now

Great "tossie" from Vickie Bush ... I used it so much it finally broke!

Really proud of this ... 1st place, Adult Bronze Free Skate 2014
