Title Skating Party on the Levee
Description particularly the last one, really went for a ride and many times this ride was "belly-boost" across a wide area on the ice. All too soon it was nearly dark, and the ever-present warming fire was a welcome sight. A near full moon was overhead making almost eerie but beautiful shadows everywhere. It was a perfect November night, one that would be remembered for a long time, A certain skater [who shall remain nameless] noticed a certain girl was watching him as he skated by. He was sure she was watching-a perfect time to make a favorable impression, a perfect time to show her what a good skater he was!' Without hesitation he began skating backward in a large circle, gaining speed with every stroke. Was she watching? He was almost sure she was and it was exciting. Everything was just great. Then, with absoulutely no warning, disaster struck. With a sickening splash, the nameless skater found himself in the middle of a cattail patch in knee-deep water. It was wet and cold! With little effort-but completely embarrassed, he was immediately back on the ice and headed for the warming fire Thank goodness for that wonderful fire It soon had his wet pant legs steaming. And then from out of nowhere, a blanket was thrown over his shoulders. Boy, did that ever feel good, but he was still pretty embarrassed He sure hoped that not too many had seen what happened Then miraculously a pair of bib-overalls showed up. They were a little large and had a hole in one knee, but they were dry! A quick change in the backseat of a car solved the wet-pant problem. His socks were soon dry and he was warm again and time was wastin'1 Our nameless skater soon found that wonderful, impressionable girl and asked her if she would skate with him. She graciously accepted, and they crossed arms and slowly skated off in the moonlight. No words were spoken, but he hoped that she had understood his dilemma and, bless her heart, she never once mentioned it. This time he watched closely and completely avoided 33
