You guys know how much I like skate-boarders. There’s a popular miscon-ception about skaters. People think they’re stupid, smelly, and antisocial, but I have known many skater in my lifetime and most are bright and friendly guys who are simply a little different. Also, it takes great discipline to become an accomplished skater, so it’s not a sport for the lazy. It’s true the skateboarder world is somewhat insular. Skaters tend to stick together, but they will open up to you if you take the time to get to know them.
Anyway, I thought I’d share two retro skateboarders photos I came across not long ago. I suspect the photos were taken in the early 1980’s; they have that look about them. And wasn’t that a long time ago …. 🙁
I didn’t post this morning because I was dealing with our fourth refrigerator repairman, only this guy knew what he was doing and now the fridge is fixed. Hooray! Now I don’t have to keep my beer and wine in an ice chest.
This was a fairly typical Friday for me. After lunch I hit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming, and then I visited Walmart on the way home to buy thing we need for our fishing camp. Now I’m home and ready for a quiet evening. My boyfriend’s attending a birthday party in Tampa, and he’ll likely spend the night over there so he won’t have to drive after drnking, a smart move.
Have a great Friday, everyone.
