Skate!













Great vintage roller skating ephemera via flickr (so sorry, specific search/user link forgotten!). When I was but a wee girl, I would skate whenever and wherever possible. In the winter I just bundled up in the heavy coat and headed out (even amidst snow flurries) or practiced my "moves" in the garage to ABBA or Disco Duck cassettes.

ooooo...those are awesome!! Roller rinks were the best. I only went a couple times when I was a kid and I remember them being quite magical.

OMG, love this! I loved skating, especially ice. I thought I was "it" wearing my skaters skirt & my white skates. The skates were from Sears & my skirt was home made but I held my head high! I would still love to skate to ABBA!!! Great post :D deb

Gosh, roller skating brings back memories. I was pretty darn good at it at one time. I remember the rink I used to frequent almost every night during the summer - great memories.

How's your week going? Hope you have had a chance to rest up.
