    Every kid had roller skates. The ones that attached to the soles of your shoes. They had grippers that adjusted with a skate key. One of my day camp projects was to weave plastic ribbons into a lanyard that had a clip on the end to keep up with your skate key.

      Bob,
      Those are the skates I described today. I wove gimp into a lanyard with a hook at the end, and that’s where I put my skate key.

      Gnu,
      I love the clothes and the bands in the girls’ hair. I wore the same thing in mine. Jan and Dean are wearing great shirts.

      A sidewalk surf board, love the name.

      Gnu,
      I watched Bandstand in the afternoons. It always had great guests. They all really knew how to lip sync, but I figure seeing them was all that mattered.

      I, of course, remember this song well.

      Gnu,
      I so loved Steve Allen’s program.

      They are really dressed up for this gig. This is neat that they are actually singing live.

      It catches air and it catches fire.

      The hover boards of today don’t have as much air underneath, but then that was the future!

      Gnu,
      Amazing that Lexus built the park just for the hoverboard. What they had to go through just to get it above the track is a bit much.

      Riding it was difficult even for professional skate boarders.

      minicapt,
      I used to go to a skating rink in Medford, Mass-the Bal-a-roo. By then I was a teenager, and my friends and I made a night of it. We wore skating skirts which were wide so they could swirl. Sadly, though, mine never swirled. I fell so many times my skirt was dirty from the floor.

      Up the street from my house was s mall parking lot no-one ever used. We used to \roller skate there. I remember we’d hold hands and form a snake. Never be at the end! You ended up on the ground from the wide circle.

      Great story!

      Gnu,
      My father loved watching the roller derby. I think it was on Saturday afternoons. I used to watch every now and then. I always thought the derby had a bit of the theater about it.

      I didn’t realize the men and women, er girls and boys, had the same rules.
