I saw a post recently about the old roller skates we used to have and they mentioned about making them spark which triggered a memory about blakeys, the metal reinforcement studs you put on the bottom of your shoes. I can remember getting them and banging them into our heels and then the only way I can describe it is “clipping” which was kicking our heels onto the pavement down the road to cause sparks. Of course it looked much better in the dark and it kept us amused for awhile.

How easily pleased we were in the old days.
