SKATING PROGRESS

SKATING  2010
I DECIDE TO INVEST IN A NEW PAIR of GRANDMOTHER SKATES  . . .
FROM these:my grandmothers



TO Nanas NEW SKATES

I am not sure how I came to own the first pair . . .maybe they were my grandmothers,Constance Ritchies .She played  hockey on the Trois Rivieres GIRLS HOCKEY TEAM  in the MONTREAL FORUM . . .in a long skirt with a bustle and a very elegant  chapeau!Black figure skates . .perhaps a boot attached to the above first skates photo . . .I dont remember but I think these were her skates    . . . . . . .
as I wizzzzzzed around the ice after the Zamboni watered it. . .  I must say I thought I better let the  grandson  pace me before I fell flat on my bottom . . .it was thrilling . . .
but I realize I have perhaps grown up as I did not have any desire to sleep with these new skates as I once  did with my first pair of tall hand made riding boots . . . .I just told the sales girl I wanted the most comfy pair of skates available . . .padded wherever was fine for me . . .
