    Hey there GS. I’ll skate with you but I was much better at roller skating than ice skating. Seems we each have our skills and strengths - I can rollerskate but could not ice skate as a kid. I finally gave it my all - knee injury and really weak ankles - and ice skated for the first time at age 55. It was great fun even having to concentrate hard on my balance for 30 minutes.

    Aww, that sounds cute! I was super clumsy until I started taking dance classes as a young adult.

    If I got out on the ice now, or on roller skates, I would need two people to hold me up, and even then I would bring everyone down, LOL.

    Yup. That was combined with ballet. Funny thing...I could never ice skate. Ankles too weak for that. But I used to roller skate really well. Now I wouldn't even try! Nopey! I like my bones intact and not in pieces! lol

    When I was in my teens, we rescued a St. Bernard/Black Lab mutt. Shadow looked like a hhhuuuuuggge Lab.

    Rather than walk him, I used to just put on skates and let him ferry me around the block.

    Shadow was a total gentle giant.
