    Great article….love her stories and this one is really interesting…..first time
    hearing that the Amish were into ice skating……my daughter used
    to ice skate, but I had to pay for ice time…..and my son played Hockey and
    same thing…..there was no where close to go free skating…..I don’t recall
    hearing anyone else talk about it either…..
    But somewhere, not sure if it was Mich. or not, but I have heard my husband
    talk about driving his car on the ice !! Now that sounds scary to me……
