Erica spent a good chunk of her childhood on roller skates cruising the sidewalks of the New York’s East Village. She was very disappointed when they moved up to the burbs and there were no sidewalks and the roads were covered with tarred gravel. I bet there was a time when I could have talked her into trying out for the Roller Derby. They are having tryouts this September.
I’ve often thought of shanghaiing my brother Larry and cousin Bob and going down to Yonkers to watch a match. I am a little concerned because Yonkers has so many really bad neighborhoods. I think it would be fun, but I’d insist on taking Larry’s car.
