The Broadmoor Ice Skating Club had a fund raiser this week end. Peggy Fleming and her hubby were there, Peggy was a student at the ice skating school here, her father drove the Zamboni at what used to be called the Ice Palace at the Broadmoor.
I have sour grapes about this club, my half sister Jinx was a fantastic skater. In fact, she performed for the Ice Capades but nothing is every said about her. Such is life.
I had my own spell with ice skating, my foster mother Louise wanted me to go to the ice skating school, her husband said no, that the Tutts had given orders that I was NEVER to go to the Broadmoor. So, Louise decided to teach me herself. I HATED it, I froze to death but Louise would have been a great stage mother, she was ruthless. Finally she had Jinx come to watch me. I struggled and I was not that good. I didn't like ice skating, it was to cold. Jinx said I should find something else and I agreed (lol). Louise was not happy, her motive behind all this was to get rid of me. Poor woman, that was not to be. I don't know why my sister didn't take me home with her then.
It had been planned that I would live with my sister when my dad was gone but something happened between her and my dad. My dad changed his mind for reasons unkown to me. Too bad, it would have been a good life.
I haven't put on a pair of ice skates since then and my ankles said thank you :)
