Smile Fond memories

Anybody else have these kinds of memories from growing up?

Mine is after I got my drivers license, we lived 12 miles from town so finally freedom! Every Friday and Saturday night I would pick up my two friends (we called ourselves the three amigos) and head to Estherville to the skating rink.
Two songs that never failed to empty the seats and get everyone out on the floor: Unskinnybop and Cherry Pie.
Tried skating with the kids recently, limped for a week, LOL.

Yeah, I used to go rollerskating as a kid. Can still do it now but not as good or fast.

I loved rollerskating...
then blading when they came out.
I'm afraid to put them on now, I'd probably hurt myself. Plus I think they needed a tune up 8 years ago.... in a closet since then.

I have lots of fond memories. One of my favorites is going to the woods in the spring with my mother to see the wild flowers.

I loved rollerskating. During the fav songs the rink would get so crowded. I always wished I could skate backwards and do the fancy moves that some were so proud off. I thought they were showing off. Maybe, but I was so envious, that's for sure!

I could skate backwards, and go real low to race around the curves, but what I could never do was lift one leg up and play it like a guitar while skating on the other leg like some of the other kids could!

Never had a skate board or roller skates, but in the winter we went ice skating all the time. Those are fond memories.. those and playing in all the woods in my neighborhood in the summer, there was a stream and a waterfall. Good times.

Here's one for me....Riding on a Case Tractor with "Sugar Man" all day long when I was 7 years old...He was a life long friend, loved moonshine, and was the strongest man I ever knew...He could pick up a bale of cotten and walk with it... Laugh, and then say.."What do you think about that 'Baby Boy'??
