There has been a rink here every winter for as long as I can remember. But I never see anyone using it. (Where are my hockey skates when I need them?)
When I was a little kid, I learned to skate with my older brothers' hockey skates (which were way too big). It was years before I finally got a pair of figure skates (used and also too big). It was hard to make that switch. I even used to play street hockey (without skates) with my brothers and neighborhood boys.
