It's a hot day, should we go skating or swimming? Swimming at the river-the Kettle Room

Where's the best place to eat? True Thai
Mini-ramp and beer or out on the streets all day? Mini & beer at this point.
How old are you in skate years? Physically I would be a step below Wes Humpston. An out of shape mid-30's. Just enough time to formulate a comeback.....09 Year of the Cheeps???? Whether I think I can or I think I can't, I'm right.
It's 10 PM on a Saturday night, what are you doing? Drinking at the cabin, listening to barred owls hoot.
