|: : That is superb having your father get back on skates after all these years, and then to join you at such a special time of the year.
: : I really would love to attend, but times are tough here. Spending $60 on skate parts to get myself back into the park is a luxury at this point, but I see it as necessary since skating is about the only way I can get motivated to exercise. I'm pretty much keeping Claudine company in her loneliness at this point in time and missing out on the gathering.
: : Hopefully next year things will be better, and maybe by that time I will be able to perform something worth watching.
: Maybe we can meet up some more to get some sessions going.... to help you reach that goal?! I really didn't have enough time, when we last met, to really get to know you or skate with you.
