gosh awful bad luck boomer old chap. get well soon.
I was really upset by your misfortune. I had been looking forward to meeting you for some time now. You got to mend soon man . we need more old schoolers in our ranks.Nice to meet you and some of your kids .Just wish it could been under better circumstances.To you and your family I hope you mend soon. Looking forward to another time when we can roll again. Richie.
Boomer, if you’re reading this, massive sympathy. I’ve been reading your posts, visiting your cool british site, and looking frward to skating San Remo with you for weeks now. I reckon all Australian old schoolers will be wishing you a speedy recovery and many more happy layback grinds.
Boomer…couldn’t believe your misfortune. John has filled me in on the details…faaaarrrkkk.
…GET WELL SOON…
Thanks also for the central coast hospitality, good to meet everyone at last! John thanks also for the lift.
I hope Nick is recovering ok.After you all left Paul turned up.He was as dissapointed as me with your mishap. I stayed and had a roll in the bowl for a while and Paul and myself had a good session.I would have loved for you to have been there in stead of being at hospital you would have had a blast.You seemed to just to be getting warmed up too.I definitly want to skate with you again. Get well soon .
