Yikes, I cannot believe that it’s already time for the ‘Fro again. I love it and therefore cannot miss it.
This week I bring to you a photo from a favorite childhood event. But before I bust out the spectacular photo, let me tell a little story or two.
This week’s photo has to do with roller skating. And when I was a child, the only time I was allowed to roller skate was if it involved a birthday party or a church event.
No Friday or Saturday, your parents drop you off at the skating rink for a night of skating fun! No ma’am. Never happened. Not even once. But I did love it so.
No kidding, one of my favorite songs when I was young was “Knock Three Times on the Ceiling”…. which required skater participation by carefully tapping your skates 3 times (brilliant) on the skate floor.
And who couldn’t forget doing the Hokey Pokey on skates. What orthopedic surgeon came up with that brilliant idea?! Props to him.
And in the 80’s who couldn’t forget the “Couples Skate”, which wasn’t complete without a nice song by Journey and some boy’s sweaty hand.
babbling ado, I present to you one of the only photos I have of myself skating. With good reason, I suppose.
I am about 6 or 7 here and clearly have skating fashion sense down to a fine art:
Yes, I am the beauty in the Pizza Hut tablecloth shirt complemented by the denim shortall complete with “GO” and “STOP” signs on each hip. This entire ensemble is highlighted by your basic 70’s white knee sock and beige roller skate. All for your viewing pleasure.
The original Tammy skate design is almost overshadowed by the young lovely in the dingy white bell bottom and striped shirt ensemble. She musta been rich, looks like she had her own white leather skates.
