Preserved Skates

Growing up in Canada learning to skate is a national requirement. I have early memories of making my way to an outdoor pond and putting on a pair of too large skates (familial hand me downs), tentatively pushing around a wooden chair on the slick frozen surface and in the end doing my best Bambi on ice impression. My skating has improved over the years, but not too much.  Today’s post is one of my “Preserves” in it I have preserved a pair of the ubiquitous footwear of my homeland.
