By the Light of the Silvery Moon

Yesterday I went to our local thrift shop in search of old books. I didn't have any luck finding the books, but I found something even better! A really "cool" find! It reminded me of one of my very favorite old movies.



By the Light of the Silvery Moon,a movie starring Doris Day and Gordon MacRae which takes place in World War 1-era America.



Aren't they cool? Look at the faux fur at the top! They remind me of the skating scenes at Miller's Pond in the movie. Best of all they were only $5.00 and in the original box! Makes me want to go ice skating, which I haven't done since I was a kid.



Rudy likes tthem too! Actually Rudy likes anything new that's brought into the house. I had a terrble time taking the pictures because he was always in the way.



Do any of you remember Sears at Christmas time as a kid, when they would have boxes of ice skates stacked as you entered the store? Does anyone even ask for ice skates anymore? I would love to experience one more childhood Christmas.
Want to come along?

Too cool - I remember getting skates at Christmas. Also remember skating with my brothers and sisters.
Gave my skates away, Texas has indoor rinks but it's not the same. Sometimes I miss Illinois.
Enjoy your new treasure.

Oh God, when I was a child I owned a pair of ice skates like that! I usually went skating at Cortina d'Ampezzo (Italian Alps)during Christmas holidays. Thanks for the memories...
