Read more in my February column: Memories of my first skates.
This photo of me (with double-bladed skates) was taken when I was barely two and one-half years old. Note the stiff oversized mittens. I bet they were red. I have a memory of shiny red mittens we called "lobster claw" mittens.
In the distance you can see the sloped lawn of the old "Locust Lawn" estate.
