She Can Still Ski

BY PAMELA JO BOWMAN, MESA, ARIZONA — pamSkiingStill.jpgI was pretty convinced that skiing wasn’t in the cards because frankly i am too old to deal with the cold and the snowstorms. On Monday morning we woke up to clear skies. So really what choice did I have? It is true i was terrified of blowing out one of my 50 year old knees. They pretty much ache all the time. Whine, whine, whine. I envisioned being hauled down on the toboggan. My daughter having to drive my rented car and she is only 18. How to deal with changing flight plans. My imagination goes to the minutist detail. Rather pathetic I think. So at 12 when we had to leave so Wistie could get to work I was happy neither of us had been hurt. My pride was bruised a bit because by the second run my legs were burning and I hadn’t played that hard for that to happen. When my feet became numb, not from cold, but poor circulation I became concerned. The video was taken on Wistie’s phone. Can’t really tell, but that is me having fun on a splendidly spring ski day! Hit the picture and watch life being good.
