Happy Birthday y’all!
I must be getting a cold or allergies, Chunk.....my throat tightened up and my eyes got a little teary watching that video.
Where DOES the time go??????
I was the same when watching that, seems like it wasn't that long ago and life has changed a lot since the days of that footage or just youth in general. I'm not sure where that was taken but I had to watch it a few times to see if I was in it because I can remember doing the exact same thing after school when someone had organised a skateboarding class/ downhill run and competitions etc. Maybe it was a global craze like the Yo-yo fad?
I think I JUST missed the skateboarding craze. (we only had homemade boards made from old roller skates and 1X4 lumber) But we still had the enthusiasm, carefree recklessness, and exuberance of those kids, in almost everything we did. You can tell that's old footage, 'cause there's not a helmet or elbow pad in sight. (I did see a pair of gloves, though) Thanks for posting it!.
They were good times, I can remember my dad and me knocking up a billy cart out of old lawnmower wheels and some 2x4's, rope for steering and sending me down a steep hill on it before we had skateboards. There where no safety pads, helmets etc back then. Life was a lot simpler and much more fun back then. Try that today and the police would be involved and the kid would probably end up in protective services.
Happy late birthday! I turn 40 myself in 1 month and 3 days...but who’s counting.
And probably justifiably so!.....Concrete streets are a lot HARDER today than they used to be! (...and kids' heads a lot softer!)
I might have had a iced cream bucket helmet but cant remember.
Skin off the elbows and knees was just part of growing up back then and our streets are the same. Some might have had unlucky accidents but I don't remember ever hearing of kids suffering permanent injuries. That said I would give my kid a real helmet and pads before sending him down a steep hill on a home made billy cart these days.
Happy birthday kid!
Bah, forty’s not bad. It’s the mid-fifties when the weird stuff starts happening.
For example, I was in my mid-fifties when I noticed that my old military uniforms had begun to shrink, just hanging in the closet in garment bags!
I’m not sure what the deal was there. I didn’t even do anything to them. I guess the fabric started getting old or something.
And that’s just one example. Life from the mid-fifties onward is full of unexplainable anamolies.
You'll be more amazed at how fast 72 gets here (just ask me)!
Have three sons in their early 50's, two in their late 40's and one 35, and ten grandchildren and three great grandkids.
Hi PT, hows your blood pressure today? RT. 66 is a little rougher than I expected, but my BP was 134/70 on Monday...and that was higher than usual.
at 40, I was still in Louisiana
Mardi Gras parties this weekend, keeps ya young
I appreciate your concern. I never check my own blood pressure, but I trust it's OK, because I faithfully take the medicine my doctor prescribed for it, and it's been good whenever they check it.
My post is a quote from memory, so maybe not spelt perfectly, of the birthday card Owl wrote out for Pooh to give to Piglet. A. A. Milne's Winnie the Pooh was one of my earliest exposures to great literature!
I was at my best in my 40's. Fitness, income, etc. were all at it highest point during that decade. The only downside is that it was also the fasted decade to fly by and at the tail end of it I needed glasses and the grey hair arrived.
Enjoy the decade and try to keep it slow.
What a *****.
I dream of being 40...
Call me when you hit 60.
