This year I wanted only one thing!
Real bicycles are back. You know the kind that you can sit up straight and tall and survey the passing scenery with the wind in your face and peddle up the hills and coast them down. Love biking! Bikes are back, baskets, pretty paint, real leather covered seats that sit comfortably, buddy bar in back and honest, really-there fenders! Woohoo!
So I coveted one. Of course, I didn't have to make as much noise as I did (they would have caught on with a lot less hoopla from me), but I am SO impressed. And when I am impressed about something, I wear out everyone's patience saying so at every opportunity, or non opportunity.
They came home with roses and the bike on Saturday evening. It rides beautifully just as I thought it would. Now, to get a bike for Elv and each of the children.
