For those of you who aren't from southern California, Skateway was the rink to get yo' skate on in the mid to late eighties. Until it burned down. At least, that's the rumor I heard. You know how skating rink rumors are. Two words come to mind when I think of Skateway burning to the ground: foul and play. Or maybe four words: vicious elementary school gossip.
I guess I'll never really know the truth.
In closing, I'd like to share a video of my niece, Paige. She is a rockstar. I watch this video when I need to have my faith in humanity restored, which has been quite often of late. It's a real picker upper.
("Gave you all I had, you tossed it in the trash! Tossed in in the trash...." I love you Paigie!)
(Gah! I forgot to mention from whence I received the lovely leg warmers! For shame! They were a gift from Naomi, my Crafty Friend. If you like what you see, go to her blog and tell her to start selling them on etsy.)
