89-Year-Old Broke Hip Inline Skating Five Years Ago...Painted Roof To Honor Love

Here's a brief article about a man who painted the tiles of his roof as a sign to heaven for his deceased wife caught my eye for its comment on the emotional aspects of inline skating, and because of this age, around 84, when he broke a hip skating!

It took Mr Hall, 89, three months to paint the roof of Berta's corner. Mr Hall said he was relieved it was finished because he broke his hip roller-blading five years ago.

"Roller-blading was a way to forget the loneliness of life," Mr Hall said.

Human-Powered Circumnavigation by Pedalboat, Bike & Inline Skates (Rollerblades)

I'm so glad someone is living some of our dreams for us as we live some of theirs for them!

Jason Lewis is a British trekster (supertrekker some say) who has spent part (all?) of the last 13 years circling the earth by pedalboat, bike and inline skates, often joined by a friend on his journey. It seems the goal is to use neither wind nor motors in his quest.

Kaffeeklatsch: Double Espresso in Khaki Shorts
