Gryffin's Tail has moved!

Gryffin's Tail has a new home. It got too hard to mirror to this site. I don't maintain this site anymore.

To all my email followers, I've transferred the Feedburner address to the new site so you should start receiving emails again. I didn't know this page stopped mirroring until a day or so ago. I'm sorry you've missed out for the last few months but the good news is that I don't post much so it'll be easy to catch up!

The A.Skate Foundation

I mentioned earlier that I had to reorganize my Twitter and while I was doing a bunch of following for my spiffy new account, I came across this:


Seriously, folks, this is awesome.  I used to skate as a kid, I was never very good as I didn't put enough effort into it but I had a few tricks.  I followed skating religiously at the time, though.  I won't go into how long ago that was, let's just say Tony Hawk was still a kid, too.

Imagine my thrill when I saw this organization.  Squee!  All my dreams for my very own punk rock, skating sons that would make my husband cringe seem not so distant anymore.  How could I have not known about them?

Please check them out.  They offer skating clinics and grants for gear.  You can even get a free helmet.

It doesn't get any better than this for me.  The thought had never even crossed my mind that my son could learn how to skate.  I honestly don't know if he has any desire to but that doesn't stop me from getting all squishy and gooey inside that he might like something I was totally into when I was kid.

Kudos to A.Skate!


Been tweeting a bit with @askaters' Chrys Worley, one of the founders.  She seems like a great lady and you might want to know a little about her journey with her son, Sasha, which you can find here.
