    Been a Bit of Time

    It's been a bit of time, but in recent history Skating has been bought to my attention. Years ago (before I move to mid -Missouri) I used to skate a fair amount. The desire to try my skating legs has resurfaced . I think it would be great to give a go and fall on my bum once more...

    Grew Up On Skates

    My dad owned skating rinks on and off when I grew up.  I love roller skating.  I can't do any fancy dance moves, but I feel as comfortable on skates as I do on my own two feet (for the record, I can't really dance on my own 2 feet either).  I always carry my...

    Rolling With the Times

    It was an old Wooden Floor, polished into "oak-ice" perfection, in the skating rink. About waist high, a guard rail was tacked around 3 of the walls for "beginners" to grasp at before loosing hope and flopping helplessly onto the hard, unforgiving floor! At...

    I Remember...

    I remember when I first learned how to roller skate...mom told me how to stop, but we lived on a hill, so when I tried to stop, I fell over...and ever since then, whenever I skate, I skate into the grass lol

    Started When I Was 8 Years Old.

    I would skate until the music stopped and I loved it!  Then when I was 17 I broke my ankle spinning.  OUCH!  Still love it even if though some guy slammed me into the floor once.  Seriously he crashed into me doing about 70mph and it knocked the wind out of me...

    Roller Skating 70's Style

    I roller skated in the 70's Chi-town area- the HUB!  What a gas.  organ music, fox trot, waltz, couples, dance numbers.  It was fun even for me 10-13 yrs old about 2 X a week.  Now I found it again, about an hour away and the average age is 60.  It is so...

    More Fun Than I Thought

    When I was younger I would roller skate all the time, even had a birthday party at the roller rink. Now I've rediscovered how much fun it actually is. The roller rink I go to is old-school style, hasn't changed in the slightest in thirty years, with the carpeted walls and all. I...

    This activity was probably the reason behind the many bruises I aquired as a child. I was covered in them!! I just kept falling over or running into things such as lampposts, walls, hard to miss they are :)
