Skating

When we go skating, there is always the obstacle of the dreaded electric fence. Eventually, someone steps forward and gingerly tests the wires. If all is clear, then we all climb through.

I can just feel that gnawing chill in the fingers that you have to tolerate to get skates on. * shivers* Ever try tying skates with mittened hands? - It doesn't work.


All we have is this little puddle in the meadow with weeds poking through, but it works.


Lookin' at home on the ice - which, if you know Faith, is unbelievable!


The March of the Penguins


Prehistoric Hockey (the kind the Neanderthals would have played :-)


If thy brother offends thee, knock him over the head.


The Battle of Wounded Knee

It does give him a rather unfair advantage doesn't it? Reminds me of the "Survival of the Fittest" idea. :-)
