LOL, no, actually I never did learn to skate properly. They certainly tried to teach me and even gave me a pair. I gave them away when we came here and I was safely away from my ex-ILs and wouldn't hurt their feelings ;-).
Sorry about the snow shovel - I really wanted to give you a diamond but I couldn't afford it 8-(. Need more sparkpoints to go into luxury stuff like that! I usually give dark chocolate but thought I'd do something different for a change ;-). And hey, you never know when you might need a virtual snow shovel ...
As to the 17K points, there was a congratulatory message from SP in my FriendFeed. Probably is in yours, too ;-). Congrats! 2167 days ago
Thanks for the advice and encouragement. I'm familiar with depression and am familiar enough with my mental states to know when to start taking anti-depressants, so I'm watching carefully. Thanks again. 3060 days ago
