This is a great read Alan. Backwards uphill huh? Interesting. This was a nice reminder of my childhood. I didn't jump off of roofs. I did have a skateboard and I did like the monkey bars.

Infact we were not allowed to wear pants until after I graduated from Hight School. I know right ha. I do think playing outside with friends is great for everyone. BTW I would still fly high in a swing if someone would push me. Great words Alan. Do more of this I love it. BTW The first time I find an incline that is killin me I am going to try and walk backwards.
