Friday Photo Flashback

I started "Friday Photo Flashback" because I have so many pictures from my PRE-digital camera days. I thought it would be fun to scan them and share them here with you. I'm having so much fun doing this, that I would love for you to join me, too! So dig out the photo albums and put your scanner to good use! Don't forget to link up so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!


1972-1973

I'm taking you back...way back, to Moffett Field, California! We dad was in the Navy and we were stationed there. We lived there up until I started Kindergarten. I had to be around 3 or 4 years old, and yes, I was skating already!! Those weren't the plastic wheels, those were the old school metal wheels..lol. And as you can see, my parents did not worry about me spraining my ankle (see the unlaced boots). It' so funny when I look at this picture because Veronica totally has my legs!

This picture is a little blurry because I'm sure I was skating, and back then, the cameras didn't have the "sport" option. Oh, and I just remembered something! My dad took my sister and I roller skating when I was in elementary school (in fact, it's the same place we take our kids to go roller skating now) and I remember him skating so good! He was rexing and skating backward! I found out later that he was a roller skating champ in the Philippines when he was a teenager!!! No wonder my kids picked up on it so quick..heehee.

Lovely picture and interesting post. I have hundreds of pictures of my twin and I which were taken before I got a digital camera. I only got a digital camera last Christmas. All the pictures of my twin and I were scanned. She died just before our 47th birthday on October 16, 2008. Today, November 4 is my birthday. I am a new Follower of your Blog. Take care and have a good weekend.

Cool shot! I bet you have a lot of fond memories. I don't think I learned how to roller skate until I was 6 or 7.
