Cutting a Dashing Figure

Hello Dear Reader,
Grandma (Mary Hall) Carter and her cousin, Lila, loved to try to ice skate. They didn’t have shoe skates, only clamp-on skates. They needed something to support their ankles. Sometimes they bribed their little brothers to take off their high-top shoes and stay in the house. They clamped the skates onto their brothers’ shoes and wore them to go skating on Wride’s Pond.

They had lots of fun. One time they decided they were going to be figure skaters. They tried going backwards, forwards, and all around. Although they were probably just barely moving, as Mary recalled, they thought they were really doing great. I guess greatness is all in the mind.
