Default The reason I am called "rollerdonna"

Recently, for my 50th birthday, my daughter put together a large collage of my life. She found this picture, taken on my 21st birthday, when I got my own pair of skates - a big thrill at the time! I thought you'd like to see where the name "rollerdonna" comes from!



donna (who's passion for rollerskating has been replaced by a passion for cruising!)

No, really, Donna! The first thing I thought of when I saw the picture is that it could have been taken last week! You really haven't changed. You go girl!

Donna, have you ever rollerskated on the inline track on one of the Royal Caribbean ships?

Great picture and you DO look pretty much the same from your recent pics with your son.

Wow, Donna, great picture! I had a hunch where the name came from (I think we've talked skating before) but boy, you look terrific and still do! :-)

I have a pair of sky blue Labeda skates on my closet shelf that I bought early 90's when skating had an upswing here for a little while! Of course, after a couple of falls, I realized I could hurt myself going through a second childhood in my 50's!

Cheers,

John, they were Dominion skates - the best at the time. Still have them, although haven't used them in about 2 years. My best skating buddy got pregnant, couldn't skate, then has been incredibly busy with a hyper, super-baby since then. Now the baby is 2, she is already skating on her own (she's quite something) so her mother and I are talking about going back to it!

The skates bring back memories. My wife and I met skating we were fanatics about skating. My wife did competition skating. The first gift I ever bought her were new skate boots and wheels. The wheels cost me $80 a piece and the boots were $450 back in 1972.

Thanks for the memories.

Hi Donna,

I have to agree with everyone else. You haven't changed at all! What's your secret?

I'm thinking it's working with children every day-they must keep you young!

You've got "Lucy" legs! (Lucille Ball, for you younger readers.) Even in her "later" years her legs were still "young"!
