Jim MontgomeryNot trying to 'oneup anyone', but the historical fact is I have just turned 72 and when I first found out about skate boards, in the fall of 1963, my brother-in-law-to-be put sidewalk skates on 2x8"s, took them to the rolling drives of Brookside Park in east Indy and 'sidewalk surfed' the day away. The next day I took my fiance to the steep drive behind Arlington High School in northeast Indy and we made one trip down. Well, I did. She wiped out about 2/3s of the way down, badly skinning her left hand and scuffing her new engagement ring. Oh, to be young and foolish again... not to mention having a feeling of indestructibility, which fortunately most of outgrow.

David E. ButtsYou're only a year younger than me, my friend. Don't use "40" together in the same sentence with "history" or "antique"
