Long Boarding with Bailey

What could be funner than long boarding for the first time. Bailey popped back into town carrying two long boards. One for me and a huge one for him. Bailey wanted me to stand up but I thought that would end up in a concussion and fracture of some kind. When he said ok, you don’t have to stand up, you can sit, I thought I’d give it a try. After all if I started going too fast, I could just lean to the left and zoom off the sidewalk into the grass. I had to stay out of Bailey’s way. His long board was a lot bigger than mine and because of his weight, he could go a lot faster than me. He would whip past me with his helicopter hat just a spinning. Then he would tumble off into the grass and laugh in that deep familiar rumble. Bailey took this picture of me after I hit the grass and tumbled. I wore the leather gloves to protect my drawing hand. Bailey said when he first started, he wore all the fur off of his left hand rubbing it against the sidewalk.
