Monday Memories: At The Skating Rink

Here a picture taken at my teenage hangout, the skating rink. It was called The Carousel Skating Rink. You could find me there most Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday nights. I have a lot of memories at this skating rink. I was probably around 14 or 15 in this picture. Now, this skating rink has become a sleep center, and it has moved into a new place with a new name (Mega Skate), although it's been there for many years now. I remember my friends and I "trucking" to the likes of Loverboy's "Turn Me Loose", and the Commodores' "Lady, You Bring Me Up When I'm Down".

Most of my teenage dating came from the guys that I met at the skating rink. I think this picture was taken on my birthday, hence the bow. The boy in this picture with me was NOT my boyfriend! He was just a neighbor of mine named Patrick. But, you see that hunk spinning the records above us? I DID date him! ;) And yes, I DID say "records". His name was John. I wonder where both of these guys are today. I haven't heard anything out of them since back in the day...

LOVE looking back with you in time... how fun! We used to have Christian Skate on Monday nights at a rink not too far from us. I was never a great roller skater, but it was fun!
