Hey, I get bored easily! so, sitting on the chair, watching the parade come to me, is not something I can handle for more than 15 minutes. Better put on the skates and take a route to the parade! Our group skated through the city, hitting up some of the familiar squares/parks that are of some […]
With many thanks to the wonderful organizers of the Philly Free Skate, I am exceedingly happy to be able to participate in this event this year (I’ve missed it for number of years due to work travel). This year, of course, the event was full of slightly wet skating and other kinds of fun. We […]

Nothing like a nice skate after eating all that nice meat yesterday. Don’t get me wrong, family dinner with all the niceties of day-long prep, food*100, alcohol, and a nice conversation [as long as Trump doesn’t come up; and, thankfully, it didn’t]. But, after all of that, a nice skate is a must. With temperatures […]
