Morning humor times 2

Jo (Marijo my wife) and I often on the weekend will go for a bike ride following the river trail by our home. We took Summer our dog who I have on her leash as I pedal. It works much better for me to take her as I’m lower to the ground. We arrived down to the harbor and see two little red head twins around 4 years old fishing with what I guessed was there grandfather. They didn’t appear all that interested in fishing and upon seeing Summer were asking us if they could pet our dog. The one young lady seemed to really be staring me up and down. Kids often are just so honest and will ask you what happened. Usually when they see a couple of legs missing and an arm they hone right in on it. Well this little redhead circled me a few times being very quiet and finally says to me, “hey your not wearing a helmet”.

As we started to turn back to go home we came to one incline section that gives me trouble so I yell to Jo to just get a head of me a bit as when Summer sees that she will pull at her leash trying to keep up and my intend was to get some dog power assistance to get up this grade. It’s all working great, Summer is just starting to tug at her leash as we get to the start of the incline and I notice an old man with his dog sitting on the side of the hill. Summer gets me 3/4 of the way up the incline and the man screams at me “you lazy bugger, start pedaling, help that poor dog” .

For the second time in less then 5 minutes I laugh and smiled.

Perception is in the eyes of the beholder.

    Very funny. I guess the new saying should be “Out of the mouths of Babes and Old Farts”.
    (I guess I’m closing in on Fartette.)

    I’d love to hear more about your bike setup. Are you using a regular bike with just the bk leg? Do you just grasp with one arm? I desperately want to bike again so your post was very inspiring!
