"they also serve who only stand and wait"

spectators at the base of the ski hill, waiting for their young loved ones to zip down.

I remember this scene.

I remember this scene also Brattcat, but there was no snow and no skies..more beach, big waves and surfboards.

I would be in the Wait and Watch category for sure.

I recall both the scene and the poem. I wonder what John Milton would think of this? T's a common mantra in my life!

Funny picture and title. That's where I'd be - with my camera at the ready.

Re your question on Ocala: I'm sure it's possible. Just copy the picture and bring it to your hairdresser. And if she/he can't do it, I'd suggest finding another hairdresser with alpaca potential! :-)

Where do I go to find the big fireplace with the comfortable club chairs, to wait for the kids and those who are waiting outside?

Blind skiers? The poet could never have imagined this.
