  • Boo had his second ice skating lesson tonight.  No major falls, and the addition of a spiked bicycle helmet seems to have helped him get over being afraid of getting a concussion.
  • If you ever want to get in touch with the Russian speaking contingent of Louisville, just visit the ice rink on a Monday evening.
  • If you ever want a demonstration of Newtonian physics, watch a small group of 6 and 7 year old boys try to skate close to each other.
  • Of course Irish Woman dropped Girlie Bear off at the YMCA close to the skating rink.  Why wouldn’t she?  In totally unrelated news, it takes approximately 20 minutes to drive from the YMCA close to our home to the one close to the ice rink.
  • If you translate “Irish Woman” into Gaelic, it comes out as “Kwisatz Haderach“.  I did not know that.
  • Irish Woman wants to paint the deck of the side porch a shade of brown to better hide dirt and such.  She officially shot down my proposal to do the whole thing in flat dark earth.
