    I don't think so and is quite a compliment in my books.

    When Josee and Jean-Michel were together, blades referred to J-M as Josee's dog walker.

    I loved Josee's skating and miss seeing her on the ice!

    What's really sad though? This is the first thread about Josee at FSU since blades passing I think. It's so strange to see a Josee thread and no post from him in it.
    I raise my glass to Blades with his trademark Bombay Saphirre.

    I remember seeing Josee win Canadians in 1994 in Edmonton (a week after attending U.S. Nationals in Detroit). Her short and free programs were so beautifully constructed that year, if she skated them at the same level in Lillehammer, everyone sitting with me agreed she was a shoe-in for an Olympic medal, if not the gold.

    That was a great memory.

    Speaking of PJ Kwong, she's the August writer-in-residence at Open Book Toronto. She has a book, Taking the Ice: Success Stories from the World of Canadian Figure Skating, coming out in September.

    http://www.openbooktoronto.com/ http://www.takingtheice.com/

    I'm guessing that Josee's mentioned in the book

    That link mentions a contest for a free copy of PJ Kwong's book. Anyone know if it's only open to those in the Toronto area? I can't find the full contest rules.

    If you e-mail the editors at open book (see the the about us link), I'm sure they can fill you in on the contest details. They usually respond fairly quickly.

    On the taking the ice website, it says that details on how to make international orders will be available when the book is out.
