I bought my kids, Joanna 9 and David 11 roller skates today. Bringing memories when my dad bought me for the first time, made me happy and a little sad. Time passes so fast, it felt like it was yesterday when my dad bought me my first roller skates, made me happy and a little sad deep inside. Well, the fact is I still can strap them on and roll in the park like the days of past. I've been inspired by elder people in their 80's still using roller skates. Yes, some habits seem to never die.
