Skating on Palgrave pond

Skating on Palgrave pond

A few days ago I spent my birthday gift certificate on new skates. I donโ€™t recall ever having new skates. Iโ€™m maybe one step above a noob as far as my skating goes. I tried the skates today with bdot on Palgraveโ€™s pond. They are a lot better than the hand me downs Iโ€™ve been using. We met the brilliant man who maintains the pond ice. We both thanked him.

After a quick soak in the hot tub, and a bowl of bdotโ€™s delicious soup we rushed off to meet my sister and JP. We were off to see The Hobbit 2. It was quite good. The action sequences were impressive. Tolkienโ€™s story of fantasy often delightfully rendered. A few scenes were a tad tediousโ€ฆ it is a bit if a stretch making The Hobbit into three moviesโ€ฆ.

Canada barely got by Slovakia todayโ€ฆ U.S tomorrow. .. Ugh.
