  1. Wow, you love ice skating. Must have stronger ankles than I. :) My step daughter wanted to the 4-H ice skating thing after Christmas last year, first time for her. She didn't like it one bit, I remembered how, and remembered how my ankles didn't like it either. But we all had fun falling down. ;)

    Cute meme.
