I huffed and I puffed and I almost fell down…but didn’t!
Wow! It’s only 70 outside! I’m going for a walk and enjoy this rare overcast day in Central Texas!
I don my cool shades,
lock the door behind me, turn around and see Cali, short for California Girl – my Huffy bike. She returned my look with sad puppy dog eyes (must have learned that look from my grandog) because I hadn’t ridden her in months. Touched my ever so sensitive heart and before I knew it I was dialing in the combination to set her free.
So after a rough start (up onto the grass, barely missing that tree, and the decision to walk down the sidewalk instead of ride) things got better. A few scary moments at the start, then I got my stride and we sailed away…around the parking lot.
You would not believe how steep the way is back home from the other end of the parking lot! It’s deceptive…looks flat, but it is very very steep judging by my huffing, puffing and muscle strain. We made it back safe and sound in 2 pieces, one of me and one of her.
I haven’t figured out how to take a pic of me riding my own bike, so I will have to settle for a pic of me riding Friday, aka My Girl Friday who belongs to a colleague.
Life is fun!
