Good friends.

It was in my mother's closet in the back.

Well, I love to skate but I definitely knew
that the sweater contest was going on, and

when I went home for Thanksgiving break I
brought back this sweater.

Pretty decent. I own my own pair of skates. I come
from Maine, and it is pretty cold up there,

so I have done a lot of skating.

Do you ever fall down anymore?

I'm sure I do sometimes when I try to do something
stupid or beyond my abilities.
