Going from skating 3-4 times a week to twice a month has taken a toll on my skills.
To be, or not to be. is the question. It was not to be.

The old adage holds true: do not count your chickens before they hatch. In the case of the rink opening, the rooster must have been sterile.

The building is being converted to a furniture store, and I am still making the long, long journey to embrace the hardwoods in Roseburg, Oregon.

Skating rinks on the west coast are becoming extinct.
