Backyard Rink

1 tarp 40 x 100
(because i have little, if no, sense of dimension)
every scrap piece of lumber and the 3 logs in the yard
staple gun and lots of staples (i swear, that's it -- its a goddam engineering ::miracle::)

finally by Dec 30, skating..then of course the heat wave & back skating Jan 11

Jan 15 2007

the snow helped round out the edges a bit, and I had to cut alot of the tarp edges off because I had so much extra fabric (no sense of dimension, remember?) I had to use the pieces to stuff around leaks... I have no idea how I got water to stay in there...


And it is so worth it to skate in the wee hours of the morning under a cloudless night sky when there is absolute peace and quiet but for the scrape of your skates...

    I was going to write a blog post about my memories of your family in Sioux Lookout life. My sister Barbara and I both worked for your father at one time. Thanks for saying hello. I will think of more Sioux Lookout topics for us to relive.
