A Man and His Bike

He's still here!

For years my husband and I have been watching a particular older gentleman ride his bike on the busy street in front of our house.  We see him head East.  We see him head West.  Little blue bike with a little, older gentleman wearing his little white hat.  Week after week, after month, for the past 8 years, or so.  Sometimes twice a day.  We have no idea of where he's going, but he just "goes".  

We have named him Mo.

We don't know his actual name, but he looks like a Mo to us.  "Hey!  Mo just rode by on his bike!"  I'll hear from our living room.  There's something reassuring when we see him.  As I've mentioned, he is an older gentleman and the energy he puts into his bike rides, I'm sure, keep his heart pumping like a 75 year old.  (I'm guessing his actual age is 85-90 yrs. old). 

We rely on seeing Mo, so when a span of time goes by without a sighting we get concerned.  And isn't that silly?  We don't know this man, yet we think of him and feel something's off if we don't see him.

Guess who I saw this morning?

Mo.

Things should be alll-right today.

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!) Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story: I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair , my hair style was a nightmare. My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogram
