You were moving quite a bit better than I was on Sunday.

I also fell on that steep hillside on the way to #2: right foot slipped out on leaves and I landed hard on my butt. Fortunately, I avoided the disaster that can happen in that kind of fall where the other leg get crunched at the knee.

I had the advantage of having a target time. :-)

Both my feet seemed to lose all traction at the same moment. Or at least both feet went shooting up in the air. So no risk of crunching a knee.

Now, having just returned from sitting at a school committee meeting for a couple of hours, the back feels remarkably good. Though I doubt there's any cause/effect there.

Wow, you chose sitting for hours at a school committee meeting over rollerblading??
Um, good for you, I guess.

I'd say good for me for sure as far as no rollerblading. I've done enough damage to myself over the years already.

Also, good for the school system to have you involved.
But rollerblading is fun.

If memory serves, rollerblading was how Ian Smith broke his leg(!).

However, rollerblading in February seems wrong. In Massachusetts, this should be the time for ice skating.

I used to really like rollerblading, but it's been about 20 years now. Ratlum is not a good place to start again.

Compared to the Vine, for sure. I imagine there are people who could handle the Devil's Elbow on inline skates, but they're a rare breed.

Jess was pretty good in her rollerblading heyday. Not sure about the elbow, but she was quite competent about going up and down the driveway.

And as far as the lavender tresses, we got a chance to encounter them at Anza a few weeks back. Quite a fine look.
