WOW, I hadn't seen this photo since I was about 8 years old. I remember my mother taking this picture outside our apartment in Anchorage, Alaska. I also recall saying, " HURRY UP MOM, I can't hold my leg up much longer!"
You see, right then & there, I wanted to be a professional ice skater. That would always be the first move I'd practice when I put on my skates. I even had a skating rink at my school, where I finally perfected the one leg skating move. Seems so long ago.... It's a strange feeling to look at the little girl in this picture and know that she.... was me.
Thanks to my cousin for sending this picture...
