Skate in the military is when someone tries/or avoids work or duty.
But when I say Skate some folk think of fish.
The Artic Skate is a fish that looks like a sting ray, it has sort of wings.
Say skate to the girls in Wisconsin and they see the ice skate.
But when I hear skate, I see metal wheels, a skate key and lots of summer fun. The Western Auto loved me. I bought more wheels than anyone I knew. I liked get up some speed then jump sideways to slide my skates on the sidewalk, after dark the sparks were neat, but I wore out a lot of wheels. I would have been killed on a skateboard!!! I am amazed at the balance of kids today.
Boys liked sparks so much we would buy the small table leg slides and stick them on the bottom of our shoes then run and slide.
Looking back at my childhood entertainment, one was simply rolling an old worn-out car tire. I mean simply rolling the tire up and down the road or on the side walk. But for some reason it was fun!
We did this a few times!
Kids can make fun..... I have nothing against the electronic devices, but some times kids just need to 'stretch their muscles.'
What was your favorite 'outdoor fun' as a youngster?
Speaking of tires: Hey Lisa, lookee here!
This is one tough hula hoop dude!
