The Ice Skating Rink

My Dad, Lou Nesslar, loves water. Every winter of my childhood he would make an iceskating rink in our small backyard and the whole family would skate. Sometime he would put dye in the water so the rink would be yellow, green, or blue. He would also gel the backyard light so we would be the same color as the water.
