Can you skate? I use to go ice skating many years ago but not sure I would do so well at it now. It is a lot of fun and great exercise. Her other grandmother skates with her so they have a lot of fun together. I am not so brave though.

I used to skate as a kid and teen, but am too afraid of getting back on the ice these days.

@Happy2BeMe She's doing much better, emotionally, and really great technically. Thanks for asking.

I haven't done ice skating in years. I'm not sure if I'd be able to. My husband was brave enough to do some with our kids. Even though he hadn't done it years either.

I fell off a skateboard the instant I set foot on it, so any kind of skating isn't for me

Never tried ice skating. Roller skating was bad enough for me.

Here it will never snow. In the past there was a skate stadium but now I think it is not available any more since less people want to have a skate in a stadium and they can not run it due to the big cost. So I can't say I can skate as I am just a beginner and I haven't skated for a long time.

@Happy2BeMe Since it won't snow here, so it spends a lot to remain the ice in the skate stadium.

I've never skated as there has never been any ice around. One myLot member used to compete in ice-skating but I can't remember who at the moment.

Several years ago, I could. It's all about balance. Sometimes, if I'm too tired, I could fall easily still, it's such an active sport and fun as well
