I no longer bounce.

Last week, I found myself intimidated in a skatepark, and my wife noticed, too.

Leonard, there is a good side to this story. I'm sure there are "age groups" in skating. At 60 you will be entering a new age group and you will just kick butt (or fall on your butt harder). Keep being a kid because when you break a hip, life is over :)

Earlier this summer, I broke my scaphoid (more popularly known as the skateboarder's) bone. After insertion of a screw to pull the two pieces back together by a famous, now retired, Army hand surgeon, I continue to mend but the road to 'normal' hand use is looking extremely long. I highly recommend wearing boxing gloves when you ride! Hang ten! [scared]
