Yesterday I wrote about â€œThe Echo Ringâ€ where supposedly you can stand in the center and whisper and it can be heard all around the ring..should you have people standing there to hear your whisper. WELL..as it turns out the photo I showed you is a old stone bandstand. The real echo ring which I assumed was a campfire ring because it had the remnants of a campfire in the center..is up the stone steps and on the south edge of the park. Of course it is all covered with snow right now, but when spring comes I will go and take a photo of the real echo ring. So all of you that said it looked like a bandstand were entirely correct and I was entirely wrong. This is proof positive that I am not perfect, and that things are not always as they seem. Perhaps I should spend some time in the penalty box.
Last evening even though it was â€“18 F or â€“28 C we attended a Girls 12 and Under Hockey Game in Detroit Lakes. Maddie and Paige were both playing. Maddie had some skate issues..blisters and calluses..my feet hurt for her. Paige was being Paige and wore two different socksâ€¦
Here is Miss Paige in the penalty box..she didnâ€™t feel that she was hooking..but the ref said she did..so she spent her time in the penalty box. These little girls had two hockey games yesterday..in this Grandmaâ€™s opinion one Hockey game a day is plenty. They lost again..3 to 1..I wish they would win just one game this season.
Hockey..and the penalty box..the sport where if you break the rules..your teammates must carry on without you. The sport where you go in from the cold to sit in the cold:)
