i’m peter pan

I won’t grow up,
(I won’t grow up)
I don’t want to wear a tie.
(I don’t want to wear a tie)
And a serious expression
(And a serious expression)
In the middle of July.
(In the middle of July)


Yup. That’s me on my skateboard riding next to 7-Year Old Daughter on her scooter. I can still ride a skateboard as though the devil were twisting my tail. Those of you who know how old I am will look upon me with either admiration for having retained my dexterity so late in life, or sadness for being in denial about my advanced age.


Daughter said I committed a “safety violation” by not wearing a helmet and that I owed her 10 cents. I am policed by everyone.

A tip o’ the hat to Mrs. Wife for taking such fine shots.

  1. I’m very impressed. Honest.Although I’ve never really understood skateboards. Why not just walk. Safer :)Looks like lovely weather your end. Bloody rain and grey cloud over the pond.

  2. Annie: I thought for my skateboard I could be lax with the helmet law. We never go that fast.AFM: I know! I know! Imagine if something happened while I was out with her. Horrors .Nutty: You’d be doubly impressed if you knew how old I was. We’ve had a spate of nice weather. There have been trips to the beach. I am a bronzed Adonis.Nurse: It’s all Mrs. Wife.

  3. Good for you I bet 7 year old was in her glory, I just want to know can you still roll your stomach? Great pic’s!!!MT

  4. HIF: I probably could have raised my “cool” quotient if I had used a Jimmy Buffet lyric instead of a lick from a Broadway show. Rats. Too late.MT: I most certainly CANNOT roll my stomach anymore! If I did I’d throw up all over myself. And I can’t stretch my lower lip to the bottom of my chin anymore, either.

  5. Just tell 7 y.o. daughter that, as it states on page 425 of the ‘Obama Heath Care Plan’, you are of an age where the government will require you to begin considering ways of terminating your own life. They simply no longer require you to wear a helmet since it would only prolong your cost to the public at large.(said with the HUGE amounts of sarcasm as it relates to this crazy shit from the Right that is making the rounds via email, using fear tactics to, yet again, stall the creation of a universal heath care system…bastards, all of them.)
