Some Things Never Change

Here’s the Duck Toller back in 2002  when she was just a up.

She was consoling her Uncle Friar after his surgery, which was the result of a ski accident.

Fast forward, 11 years later.

Here’s an older, more mature Duck Toller.

    She looks like she’s wondering if you’ll ever learn… Sweet pupper.

    Shade and Sweetwater,

    I remember your previous accident as if it were yesterday. It happened on the second run of your first day your ski vacation out West. We were at the top of the mountain. I gave you the option to ski the back side runs, or have one more run on the front side before we head to the back. We chose the front because that steep run was groomed.

    You were so strong and fit that year, you trained and ski raced that winter. You were so excited to be skiing out west.

    Since you were new to the hill, my last words to you were “Be careful of the rollers”, as you took off like a bat out of hell. You became airborne on one of the pitches, you saw your shadow below you, you landed on a slight incline, and then felt your knee pop.

    We’ll never know what your life would be like if we had chosen to ski the back side? Life is like that. I can attest to it from experience.

    @Steph I know…she’s so gosh-darned cute…ain’t she?

    Neither of us learn…we feed off each other.

    @Friar’s Mom
    4th time’s the charm! (Or will it have to be the 5th or 6th?). Nothing surprises me any more.
