got the old man back on the slopes at 78

a 7 year hiatis and a couple new knees seem to have taken his ability to unweight the left plank strapped to his foot and turn right which led to a tough dsay

but he still could turn left and i think hell try again next season

with the guy who started the addiction

neither does sharing the passion with the better 1/2/spanser

Your story telling has advanced exponentially, and you were already amazing.
The way you tie it in with pics is seriously art.
