The last time I was skating was back on February 4, 2008.
I had a bad fall that day on the back of my head.
I was never a good skater......certainly not like my four brothers.
Since then, whenever I venture on an icy surface, like yesterday on MacDonald Hill,
I am very careful of my footing and I MEAN very careful.
And knowing that our part of Nova Scotia
has been covered in ice for the past four days now,
I dug out my pair of 'boot grippers' (with sharp teeth!!)
and walking on ice became somewhat less fearful for me.
Now to get a pair for Ron.
