Home ice

Saw some skaters on the Canon Hill pond this afternoon.

Looked like fun. But it reminded me of my late father's warnings about natural ice.

In a nutshell, here was his message:

Skate too early in the season and you will fall through the ice and die.

Skate too late in the season and you will fall through the ice and die.

He believed bad decisions had consequences.
