In Which I Discover I Need A Walker

No, not that kind of walker, at least not yet. The kind of walker I'm referring to is like the one in the picture to the left. Moody Gardens had these "walkers" to help people who were having difficulty ice skating. Unfortunately, I couldn't get any of the kids using them to let me have one. I did manage to skate a few times around the rink without falling down and breaking anything, so I consider myself as having come out ahead.

Merry Christmas to All!

A walker for learning to ice skate? Good grief! When I was a kid, I just had to take my bumps and bruises. What'll they think of next?

Merry Christmas to you!

I never saw one of them, but it's a good idea. Fortunately for me, my daughter no longer makes me go out on the ice with her.

I. Do. Not. Ice-skate.

However, the ice rink near me uses those orange construction cones for the little ones. They just hang on to 'em and push 'em ahead as they totter around.

I don't think they make those in our size, however.

So I am deeply impressed you didn't hurt yourself, becuase I would have ripped a ligament, or something.

Merry Christmas!
