1st time on skates in over 30 years......but you'd never know it!!!
: Awwwwwww, wow, that is so sweet! Glad to know that busted, older and all its still possible to keep on rolling. Thats such a cool park for easy skating! Wish I had that to roll in on low key days. Thanks for the vids. That is so cool!! We are so lucky nowadays to have all these pads as I couldnt roll without them.
You & me both,Sister! Praise Pads! Keep rollin on 8. With Pads!Take care of yourself & you can sk8 FOREVER!!!!
: : Hi Everybody.
: : Well, as some of you know, my Dad's in town & will be for RollerCon. Today we went to RC's Stop 5, Duck Creek to try out some gear for him & just to give him a chance to roll around again for the 1st time in over 30 years. Hell, to give me a chance to roll around too, since I haven't even laced up since taking that padless knee spill a couple weeks ago.
: : I gotta tell you, it did my Heart good to see my Dad out there at all. And once I saw what he could do after being off his sk8s for SO LONG made me feel Amazed. I may be skating for AWHILE yet, People! :)
: : Well, I know you're all dying to see a 62-Year Old Skater so without further he is. My Dad,Ben:

: : Bear in Mind, the Man has a metal knee cap as a result of a vertical rollerskating injury in late 70's!!!

: : And finally, the Post-Session Rap-Up. And, Look, everyone's still Ambulatory! Smiling even!!

: : So, that's all, Kids. We kept it short & Sweet. It wasn't that we were outta gas, just wanted to end Happy. We're planning to hit another local park Pre-RC to give my Dad a little more time on his sk8s before all the Big Dogs roll into Town. Me too. I need Vert......
: : More soon. Hope you guys liked this one. Pretty Special for me. Thanks to Bernard, As Always for this Forum to share it with you All.
