Rolling, rolling, rolling along!

Hello future readers,

Yesterday, after my mom and I got back from the grocery store, Boomer was yipping, barking and panting, and kept jumping for the knob on our front door. He really wanted to go out! So I took him out on the  front lawn to play a game of fetch.

It was a really dynamite day. Nice and sunny with a little breeze blowing. I couldn't blame Boomer for wanting to get out. I guess he gets "Spring Fever" just like the rest of us. After awhile Stephanie and her cousin Melody came rolling up on their roller skates and scooter.

Stephanie's dad had made the girls this really groovy scooter out of an old orange crate and wheels from an old metal strap-on roller skate. Melody and Stephanie put a funny license plate on the front and painted flowers and things all over it. There were even footprints were your feet go! It looked  really cool. Stephanie let Melody have the first ride, and she used her new roller skates. They wanted to know if Boomer and I wanted to go for a little ride around our neighborhood. Melody explained that the scooter had enough room for Boomer to ride inside! Far out! So I got out my bike, and we went for a ride.

Our neighborhood has a lot of hills, so I was worried that Stephanie wouldn't be able to keep up. She did pretty good, though and she only fell once. But that didn't slow her down. She got right back up and caught up to Melody and me. She even passed us!

After riding around for almost an hour, we needed a rest. We stopped in front of Stephanie and Melody's house, and talked, and told jokes, and laughed ourselves silly! Stephanie asked "What's the last thing you take off before you go to bed at night" I didn't know, and neither did Melody. She said, "Your feet off the floor!" Hahaha! That was a good one!

Well, it was getting late and I had to go home for dinner. Mom was making chicken ala king with rice, yum, yum! So I put my puppy in the basket of my bike and took off for home.

I wonder if kids still ride bikes and scooters and go roller-skating in the future? Maybe you have mini spaceships and go streaking through the stars and race your friends to different planets and asteroids.  But whatever you ride in, I hope you still have sunny Spring days, and groovy friends to hang out with, like I do.

Until next time future readers,
Your friend,
