Five for January 3rd:
This year. I officially turn 40 in nine months. Do I get an oversized black “Over the Hill” pin to wear? Or maybe one of those novelty baseball caps with the fake ponytail?
Starting out right. Kicked off 2017 with a January 1 old school flatland freestyle session with Greg at Shenandoah- our old stomping grounds. Met the guy for the first time on this very parking lot some thirty years ago. Team One Way lives on!
Pink lightning. Jane picked out a brand new, two-person sled to replace the old saucer sled we’d been using. Hot pink, of course. Looking forward to taking it to the park for some high-speed action if we ever get any snow.
Cool stuff. Mark Hamill’s tribute to Carrie Fisher, homemade board games, swimming/ice cream date with Janey, fruit cup and tall coffee on the way in, apricot La Croix, ’89 Team Haro video on Youtube, OG Hammer gyro covers.
NYE. I sort of miss the days of playing two-hour long sets of rock songs to rowdy, capacity crowds at Off Broadway on New Year’s Eve. On the other hand, I don’t miss the two months of practice and gear-hauling in freezing temperatures it took to get those two hours to successfully happen. Sometimes a nice, chill one at home is just fine.
