Fun thread! I came home for my Dads 90th birthday hoping the ponds he had built when we were really young would be frozen so I could skate some. Not to be... He built two ponds for my brothers and me to learn to skate before we were allowed on the larger lakes and the boys off to learn hockey. Three generations have learned to skate on those ponds and numerous neighbor kids. For the great grand kids and newest crop of neighbors he has added heat in the little pagoda and LIGHTS for evening skating......DAD.....we had to tuff it out!
I only skate infrequently since moving to Ca but this thread has got me motivated again!
