Usually I'm not a big figure skating fan, and the last Winter Olympics only added to my frustration and hatred for the sport But I used to like it, especially pairs skating because it was always so beautiful and romantic.

My favorite pairs skaters were EKaterina Gordeeva & Sergei Grinkov. I still remember when he died . . .

The happy family, who shared 3 wonderful years together before Sergei's tragic death in 1995.

Hey, Hackie!

I had problems with saving the images and then something came up on my screen like ewarning, violation, etc...of course i was completely lost,
So i tried to put the firewall on low and it seems to be working. For now. But if i have problems again i'll scream out for you.

Sergei Thanks for the memories.

TH, I thought you might like Sven. He really is beautiful. Perfect bone structure, eyes so blue you can drown in them.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

Layla, you guessed right He's quite delectable.

Have you ever read My Sergei? I'm reading it right now, but I don't know if I can read about his death

All right, Mrs. B, just let me know

No, I haven't read My Sergei, but I wouldn't be able to read about his death either. It's too sad. Maybe if I was very gloomy.

Hi Dots!

I can't believe Yagudin might have to end his career early. I hope the doctors come up with something to solve his hip problem.

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

To me Sergie & Katya are (were) the greatest skating pair i have ever seen...

His death was really a shock.

How is she coping these days, Hackie?
