Share Your World

Di, at Pensitivity101, is our host for Share Your World each week. Here are her questions for this week.

1. As a kid, did you have roller skates, a go-kart, or a push bike?

Yes, I had the kind of metal roller skates that you wore on the bottom of your shoes and used a key to tighten them up around the sole and heel of the shoes. A buddy of mine and I built a go-kart using wood, a wooden crate, and wheels from an old wagon. I never had a push bike, but I had a tricycle and then a two-wheeler with training wheels until I was able to ride it without the training wheels, which didn’t take that long.

2. Also, did you belong to a gang or just hang out with your friends?

No gang. Just a bunch of friends from the neighborhood.

3. What is the best present, birthday or otherwise, you can remember as a child?

That probably would have been my first two-wheeler bike.

4. If a friend stayed over, did you have a midnight feast or did you go to bed and sleep ?

I don’t recall having any midnight feasts, but we would stay up later than normal, play games, listen to records, or just talk. But usually, by around midnight or shortly thereafter, we would run out of steam and go to sleep.

Gratitude: What gives your day a kick start?

    My first bike was a Dutch racing bake. I was only six, so it was HUGE compared to me and I wasn’t able to actually sit on it until I was 8 or 9. But it was an amazing bike. Just ONE gear: high. You can’t put training wheels on a racing bike, so I fell down until I didn’t. I never learned to skate.

        Yep. True bitzer bike. Smaller back wheel. No mudguards. Wide handlebars. Brake ? dunno. Just do a skid stop I guess as in skiing. Much to my parents disgust. ………

    Of the three options in the first question, I had skates.
