Reading In The Car

After work, I tend to read in the car for a bit as the traffic dies down so I can have an easier ride home. When I’m caught in traffic, I keep thinking how that time could be better used for reading, so now I just read for a while and relax, which makes the drive home far less stressful and I get a lot of reading done. And I have this position where I stick my feet out the window that is really comfortable, believe it or not. A great way to end a work day.

Seacrest Inline Hockey Rink

This is the rink where I started playing hockey, along with USA on Wheels (Now part of Skate City). It was pretty easy to go over the boards here. There also wasn’t that big fence at the end, so if you shot too high, you were spending time in the grass looking for your $7 puck. The concrete was smooth, but it would wear a stick down faster than ice does. Sometimes the weather was wonderful to play in, sometimes you just played despite the weather. But at least there were no real limits on rink time, or zambonis to wait on. Just show up and play.
