Thanks Tom!

I enjoyed your video, too, and the "bro-boni's" are hilarious.  My son noticed that he has the same pj's as your younger boy.

Ernie Partridge was a good friend and neighbor who was a master with an excavator.  He's the guy who cleared and leveled the spot where I build our rink.  He passed away in December of 2012, about two weeks before I got the first rink built, so he never got to see the result of his work.  We named our new backyard after him.
