You’re an athlete! Golf and skiing!! I’ve never been around barefoot skiing. Very cool! Where I grew up everyone took after school lessons. I took everything — tennis, golf, ice skating, tap dancing, ballet, modern jazz, acting, piano, … BUT I could only do everything half assed and never got really good at anything. I mean I was good at things I didn’t have to try to be good at like gymnastics, swimming, and volleyball because I was a natural athlete and very strong (still strong ha) , but in those days it wasn’t something we went on to do. Remember, I was just supposed to sit behind a desk and look pretty and attract a husband :(

On the other hand, my daughter, Olivia, is an excellent athlete. She played four years of Division l tennis on a full scholarship in college. She is lame when it comes to anything creative, and Amy is lame when it comes to anything athletic, but she’s a really good singer/actress and does pretty well on the piano.

My father was a good writer, and my mother was an actress at one time. She also was good at sports. So genetics…
