LOL Who slapped old, bald men around the head?

My kids got a slap when they misbehaved - they have still grown up happy

@Rollerdudette: there are only skateboarders in their early 30s here - and the skateboarding priest. Whereas the older skateboarders are not overly friendly, the priest is a sound guy.

LOOOOOOOOOOL! I don't do therapy bills

Discussing raising kids.... it's a minefield! I count myself lucky with my kids; we all are compatible, which made things easier. I hope I have managed to raise them as people who consider the society they live in. I love my kids too much to let them become a menace - and at times this did require a smack! (I am odd - I think the long discussions and even longer drawn out forms of punishments are damaging)

The current stand of things are: My eldest finished her postgraduate studies (Neuropsychology) and is currently working with brain damaged people in Boston to gain the required practical experience required for a PhD in this field; my eldest son is in his final year at Liverpool university, studying Music technology. (His room is a mine field of computers and Studio equipment) and my youngest has just started at Sheffield Hallam University studying Photography and Media Management. (Right now he is continuing "Fresher's week" - until his mother gives him a slap on the back of his head, so he can leave the beer alone and begins his studies )

I am not saying that I have the recipe; I have been lucky and did my best, that's all.
Oh... a down side to bringing kids up to take responsibility in society is their need to rescue animals......................................................

Hahahaha; they love chinese food! But they are used to me eating snails (growing up near the french border) and trying all sorts of food. Crocodile is nice; Ostrich and Kangaroo a bit tough. Hate sea food, though and lamb.

Right now it's only me who skates; must motivate my kids again

I was skating (Skateboarding) in the CBD of Sydney one night, a ledge along the front of a window sill of a building front. Ollied up to grind the ledge and whammo I smashed the window. It must has been 10 x 10 feet and shatered a good size of the pane.

I just skated off. I weighed it up pretty simply as:

1) I can't afford to fix that.
2) I'm not having some dumb copper or security guard bang on about how I did a bad thig.


For years I saw societies landmarks as skate objects. I would be proud to see a worn ledge or stairs. It's urban decay. It's natural. I am much more forgiving on objects I don't own nowadays but I still think it's ok to leave your mark.

Your right there Biff, I just enjoy skating along, enjoyin a nice cold adult beverage, and taking in all the sights. I always Skated to relax, and unwind. I never even saw it as an athletic endeavor. Except when we all played hockey, and even then it was just for grins. It's still that way with me today, after 40 or so years. An escape from the rat race, as it were.----But to answer your query, no, I have no guilt. I follow the rule of "Leave no Trace" in Skating or in canoeing, or most anything else I do. I'm just passin through. And I like to leave things in at least as good shape as I found them. There will be people commin behind me.

I remember when I was in Scouts that we would pick up trash from the camp site even if we did not leave it. That way it would be better than when we got there. I still do that kind of thing. Especially at skate parks. If there is trash I try to clean up some of it at the very least. I figure it helps city officials want to build more of them. If we make an effort to keep it nice it won't be an eyesore to those who don't use them. It is like the difference between showering and not showering. It is just better.
