Some Humor and Some Fodder on the French, Razors, Rollerblades, More

If you want to read some funny comments and real observation (including why we need to be careful and caring when on skates), check out this little piece observing life in heaven, or hell, depending whether you love the little wheels. We need not be a nuisance of course, and plenty of other wheeled and non-wheeled folk are, but remember, we are a minority and thus often must meet a higher standard, or at least it helps if we do!

89-Year-Old Broke Hip Inline Skating Five Years Ago...Painted Roof To Honor Love

Here's a brief article about a man who painted the tiles of his roof as a sign to heaven for his deceased wife caught my eye for its comment on the emotional aspects of inline skating, and because of this age, around 84, when he broke a hip skating!

It took Mr Hall, 89, three months to paint the roof of Berta's corner. Mr Hall said he was relieved it was finished because he broke his hip roller-blading five years ago.

"Roller-blading was a way to forget the loneliness of life," Mr Hall said.

Adam Sandler & Keri Russell Inline Skating (Rollerblading) on Santa Monica Movie Set

Hey nothing huge here, but maybe inline skating will get a boost from "Bedtime Stories," a movie in production and recently filming in Santa Monica, if my sources (ha, see below) are correct. I'm guessing these are K2 4x90s or 4x100s?...
