I was looking through a few papers in an old box from my grandmothers house. I came across this letter from 1948. It was thanking my grandfather for the work he had done in a play a week prior. It is just crazy the effort that was put into thanking people such a long time ago. Nowadays THANKS gets lost and it seems common place to just accept things the way they are and not go out of your way to say it. I wish we could go back to a time like this.
As of today I have worked my last shift @spottampa and I am starting a career with @nike At the skatepark I have learned a lot about how to treat people and how to grow personally. It is not the contests I have worked, not the 20 hour shifts, not all the parties that have made it fun. It is the friends that I have worked with that have made me who I am. Over the past two weeks I have heard numerous times ,"I don't know what we are going to do without you." All the texts, calls, and hugs have me choking up as I write this. I cannot thank everyone enough for the memories I have made. I LOVE EVERYONE OF YOU!! @um8kmeflutter @sambellipanni @jonicoocho @derickglancy @bfd_bob @chickenlivers @warzawfactory @mikahcollins @doctorblowtorch @cailaburke @theskateboardmuseum @ian337 @tomcat_yc @crissspyyy @ericmckenney @ceereitz @hidefjoe @shredduh @dirtfacekillah @frankbranca @michiecanuck @g1mpy @chrismonte @whit_larsen @lukepallone @longlivethedirtysouth @marinonicastro @coolaskthem @jackloktu @savedbylime @rtclem @porpe @meronek @justinsworld @djdragan_ @dalyretrospective
For about 25 years I have driven by this rock pile and say "With respect Chief Duck". Until this year I didn't know if it was just a myth that my Grandpa had told me about. Each time we drove by he would say it and make us say the same exact thing or he would stop the car. Now I know it wasn't a thing of legend.
I have been riding this animal for the past few months without a license and have come to find out it is highly illegal. Well this weekend I finally got officially licensed. A special thank you goes out to @doctorblowtorch for making my wildest dreams become a reality. "Staring at the sky connecting the stars, talking about Jack Kerouac and how far it is to Mars, cruising down a blacktop road just ahead of the rain"
