I did not get roller skates, as they were convinced I would be run over.
But I had double bladed ice skates. I really loved those. When I outgrew them and the gave me normal single blades, I never was any good at it.
We also had a big hill behind our house that ended at the edge of the woods.
All the neighborhood used to come and toboggan, and then my stepmother would make hot chocolate for all.
I did have some good times as a kid!!
