Unsafe At Any Speed

If this title made you think about the Ralph Nader and the Corvair then you are telling your age a bit. But I am not talking about in the title that but about the rollers skates I had as a child: The strap-on-metal wheels type. Of there was the more modern skates available at the time but we could not afford them so I got some similar to these. I used to strap them onย  and skate about like a little mad man. Oh we did not have helmets at the time. Nor elbow and knee pads. Looking back I am nostalgic about a lot of things but wonder how I survived my childhood!

  1. I had some of those skates, too. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Speaking of Ralph Nader, every time my hubby and I see a Smart car, we always wonder what Ralph would have to say.
