Re: the good ol days
I would expect that a few broken arms and injuries will squash that, we played out there yesterday afternoon. It was my first time since the skate park opened, and we arrived as they were opening the gates.
On beautiful days, especially on the weekend bring out all the critters. I always wonder where their supervision is while they tobogan down the hill you speak of. What was really bad was seeing that go on with kids without any headgear, or the dad who was letting is four-five year old girl skate on the sidewalk without any protection. I sure wish someone would drop those folks on their heads.............maybe they might wake up. Even in little things like this, you can see how we've raised a generation of adults who lack the understanding of consequenses.
