got the car in for it's changeover. the tire that was losing air had a reason to. there was apparently a screw in the tire. so that is all fixed up now. studs are on. i took the girls for a few spins around cuddy park. i think that is the name of it. it's right by the main library in town here. so it was nice to just walk a few blocks from the car place and be able to enjoy the day.
below is the new skating ring they put in. it's set up for speed skating, hopefully, one day they'll add some lighting. it's a nice place to skate though, blossom and i have taken the kick sled there a few times.
