On July 29, 2017,  my daughter Annabelle passed three international ice dances (she now has five international dance tests passed towards gold medal number seven) and my daughter Rebekah passed NINE international dances in one test session (7/29 and 7/30/17) and has only one dance left to earn gold medal number six!

It was extra special to spend some time with my brother in Sun Valley!

Encounter in Sun Valley With My Hairdresser's Niece! 7-23-17

I've had the same hairdresser, Gail Montoya, since 1991. In fact, no one except Gail has ever touched my hair in those 25 plus years. Gail talked about her niece and grand-niece for years since they are involved with skating in Salt Lake City, but we've never met face to face until today in Sun Valley! Gail's grand-niece, 16 year old Morgan, was competing in Sun Valley Championships and Heather recognized me as I was scootering by the outdoor rink!

Reunion With Perry Jewell In Sun Valley! 7-11-17

My dad and I had a great and fun surprise today when we reunioned with Perry Jewell at the outdoor ice rink in Sun Valley!

The Schneider family and Perry go "way, way, way back!"

Perry trained at the Santa Monica rink under Doug Chapman when our family was also with Doug in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

During the summer of 1971, Perry and my brother Billy, roomed together at the Sun Valley Lodge by the rink and Perry told me the story of how Doug made Billy and Perry go to bed early since they were training, but after Perry tried to climb out the window to explore Sun Valley at night, Doug was waiting and caught him and said,"I knew you would try to sneak out!"

Also, Perry took me to the Hollywood Professional School senior prom.

In addition, I reminded Perry of a memory of I had of when we kids at the Santa Monica rink went to the movies together when I was 14 years old. Perry slowly put his arm around me and it caught me off guard. I threw the arm off, but Perry looked at me and said, "Please?" And....of course, then I agreed it was okay for him to put his arm around me.

Anyway, it was awesome to see Perry today in such a magical skating place. He'd in Sun Valley for a week with his skating students.
