Jim started skating in college, McKenzie was 13, and Karen was 52. Some of us (Karen) are really bad and others are OK, but we're all pretty low level as these things go. However, it's a wonderful hobby, a great way to stay more-or-less fit, and a lot of fun.

Click here to see a You-Tube video clip of Karen and Jim skating the Rhythm Blues in a preliminary ice dance competition, Knoxville, TN, April 2006.

Scene from the Nutcracker on Ice
The Ice Chalet, our sister rink in Knoxville, puts on a production of the Nutcracker on Ice every Christmas. We weren't in it, but many people we know skated in the 2005 show.
