Memory Lane....

Did you roller skate as a kid?
Do you still do it??


I heard a song on the radio this morning and it took me back to the RollerRink. GrandFunk Railroad, LocoMotion. Do you remember that song??

My first time in roller skates I was 9. It was so awkward!!
I fell several times!!
I had a major crash with THE HOTTEST GUY in the place......I was thrilled....I'm such a nympho!
I spent a lot of time at the RollerRink. That is where my mother would dump us on her weekends so she could go off with her "LadyFriend". She couldn't enjoy us for one day!

I envied those really cool kids that could skate backwards...I never managed to skate forward.

The last time I was on skates was 14 years ago. Roy thought it would be a great idea to take all the kids to the skating rink. I was less than pleased.
I fell several times!!
I had a major crash with THE HOTTEST GUY in the place.....and I went home with him to let him rub my ass.....He was one of those really cool kids that could skate backwards...I'm such a nympho!!

What is your favorite song from the RollerRink????

Oh, the memories that have come flooding back. "Philadelphia Freedom" by Elton John. "Bad Blood" by Neil Sedaka. We used to go to the rink every Saturday and a couple of times during the week in the summer. I couldn't skate very well either and also had a MAJOR crush on the hottest guy in the place. Couples skate. Over the calf tube socks and Daisy Dukes - believe it or not, that was cool back then. Man, I'm really really old . . .

I started off on roller skates - my dad taught me and my brother and we picked it up relatively quick. I didn't go to the roller rink, mostly skated around the neighborhood. I was, however, a rink rat - figure skater. Friday nights friends and I would go ice skating. I don't remember if I had a particular fav song.

What wines did you score this weekend?

I used to skate alot. I still have a pair of roller skates. I remember skating to "Hooked on a Feeling", but that can't be right, that was way to long ago.
Peace
