Evolution of the skateboard

I know this is tiny and impossible to read. But you get the idea.

Recalling the dawn of skateboarding

How long did this take to make its way up here?

(If you don't have Superman vision, the text block basically says skateboarding started in Southern California in the late '50s when kids took wheels off roller skates and nailed them onto boards.)

Lack of snow creates a few openings

For would-be sled dogs anyway.

This afternoon a skateboarder who looked like a youngish teen boy was being pulled at a surprisingly decent clip by two small dogs on long leashes. This was happening on Arthur, south of 29th.

The pets really seemed to be into it. And though they were the size of RV dogs, they didn't appear to be straining.

But they weren't the most disciplined team. When a bigger canine in a fenced yard barked at them as they went by, the two skateboarder-pulling pooches veered off to tell the yard dog a thing or two.

I was too far away to hear if the boy tried to recover the situation by yelling “Mush!” or whatever. But I suspect it wouldn't have done any good.
