Is there something that anyone said that sparked your memory about something else? And certainly, it did for me, to think way back during the war. You know, when a lot of people weren’t having fun, what we still did for fun.
I had a couple of mice.
And so, blowing up things, playing hide-and-seek in the rhubarb, fishing.
I also played Jacks as well. And I did read as well.
Oh yeah, I read.
I read. Yeah.
Tried to read all the books in the library.
And the school had a program, if you read ten books during the summer vacation. Then we’d walk to the library, which was quite a hike, but yeah.
And did anyone ever have a skate-scooter? When your roller skates started to wear out, you’d take a skate apart and…
Put it on a board. I did that sure.
Put it on a board, yeah.
I had a skateboard, yeah a skateboard.
A skateboard is what you mean? A skateboard, not a skate-scooter.
The first skateboard.
Yeah, those were the orange crate days. You had wood available.
Yeah, the orange crate baskets.
I don’t remember putting the roller skate wheels on a board. But, I do remember that.
Breaking your arm.
There were scooters.
Yeah, but they were expensive.
I tried unsuccessfully once or twice.
Scooters and wagons.
