    Sidewalks are extremely unforgiving that way.

    What amazes me is the quality of concrete back then. Some years back I was visiting relatives in Boise and the sidewalk looked new. The sandstone making up the concrete aggregate were sharp-edged and the concrete edges were sharp like new. I looked at the date: 1953. ~50 years.

    I’d rather fall on a sidewalk on roller skates than run into a mailbox on a bike any day of the week. I’ve done the latter and it took eight or nine stiches to close the wound. That was almost thirty years ago, maybe mailboxes are more forgiving now.

    Happy are Hamilton Burger and the Washington Generals, who have a higher win percentage than the knees.

    I’ve never seen a dated sidewalk, and I was born in 1962.

    Only little girls, Linus?

    Not all of the repaired squares are dated. If 7
    squares are replaced, only the ones on the ends are dated, the 5 in the middle are not!

    My worst encounter with a sidewalk was after just completing a 13 mile out & back at Presque Isle St. Park (Erie, Pa.) and I was coasting, cooling off, when I hit a rock with one of my rollerblades and promptly did a face plant into the cement. Broken glasses, couple of broken teeth, and a bit bloodied, but I survived (after I made an emergency stop at my dentist, who cleared her schedule and patched me up).

    And why don’t you mention the boy’s knees too?

    I thought Hamilton Burger was the DA on Perry Mason.

    Right. He always lost to Perry Mason and the Generals always lost to the Globetrotters.

    Little girls were more vulnerable because they almost always wore dresses, so their bare knees were more easily scraped. Linus is also speaking with his sister’s injury in mind, and she is most definitely a girl!

    No, the girls win because they pick themselves up and carry on skating – but hopefully having learned not to forget their pads next time.

    Day 2 in 1969 mode, even for the papers rerunning it for the first time (i.e The Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Daytona Beach News Journal, others too numerous to think of) that havere run a “B” Peanuts daily strips back in 2005 the 1992 Peanuts reruns rather than 1969 Peanuts reruns (Though after the last 1999 Peanuts rerun ran in “B” papers towards the end of 2012 they started to carry the 1960’s Peanuts reruns along with the “A” papers)
