Throwback Thursdays

Last week on Throwback Thursday, one of the comments mentioned roller skating.

Ours had the bright laces, too.

I’m totally jumping on that this week for Throwback Thursday’s post.

Did you guys ever go roller skating?

OMG. I totally did.

Friday nights were the NIGHT we waited for all week long.

Loved it.

At our place, Skateland, we had panda parties, and for birthday’s it was so much fun handing out those Panda Invites, then skating the day away with my friends.

Ahhhh, the memories.

The slick, shiny floor reflecting all the flashing lights. And then, they’d dim the lights for the slow songs . . . .

Did you guys have theme nights? I remember Madonna night the most. Wearing the jelly bracelets all the way up my arm.


So, did you have a “Skateland” growing up?


Okay, Then and Now Thursday has undergone a makeover.

A couple weeks ago, my good friend and fellow writer, KM Wilsher, called it “Throwback Thursday” I thought, “Oh wow, I love that.” So, she let me steal it. She’s got a gift for coming up with sweet one liners–Oh, and brainstorming titles for my novels ☺

So, for our first entry in the newly named theme for Thursday…

Madonna with braceletsJelly bracelets.

Okay, so, how many ladies out there remember loading up their wrists with a zillion black jelly bracelets and heading out to the roller rink?

LOL. I’m raising my hand.

Waving it actually—oh, and laughing with the memory.

Anything to look like Madonna in the 80s right?
