Thanks Biff! and MORE!
I'm incredibly happy today. I was doing the monkey plants. I landed them, even on the 4 1/2 foot kiddie halfpipe. So now will work on the handplants. Even if they dont look impressive, this is a BIG deal for me considering I thought these were out forever. My arm did OK, so stoked!!

: : Yeah thats right, the little one is finally moving up in the skate world. I dropped in the deep end! Woo-hoo! Yeah, noone was there and I had my lame egg crate. Which I'm sure did nothing in reality but was my security blanket. I figured I had to do it then so I could look stupid in my own privacy. I stepped up and when I was on the coping, kinda figured out that the crate would go in with me so I just went. And DID it!! Then I did it like 50 more times cause there was this mom there with this toddler and he kept yelling "again!" So I had to amuse the little kid til my legs and lungs fell off lol. So no crate, just go on in now. The speed/height was scary but thrilling at the same time. And no, didnt wet my diapers lol
: :
: : Getting better on the stalls too. Just the coping is so low, if I dont put my feet together, I go over lol, did a split one time too. I need my bloopers on film lol! It was an exciting day for me. The fears are coming down and I can enjoy skating again like I remember before the broken arm. I want to do a monkey plant next. :-D

: : By end of summer, should have a decent vid I hope of me doing some tricks. Nothing big but for me it will be cool. Esp. if I can get an invert in there!! That will be a monstrous accomplishment for me.
