It was a nice thought!

For my 53rd birthday, Jeff got me a bike. We thought that it might just another way for me to get some exercise. But after one trip around the block, I realized we should have probably gotten me the same type of bike, but only with gears. Because I had to peddle so hard, and the tires are so back was killing me. Oh well it was a very nice thought. Still the bike was so cute, I thought we mine as well take some photos with it...even though it does sorta make you think I ride it every I said it was a nice thought!
"Life is short, so enjoy the ride" 
In my case, we are really talking short...oh well, hopefully we can figure out a plan B! 
Good night dear friends!

You reminded me of my bicycle ride to work when I lived in Nashville. I'm laughing hysterically right now. I got myself a bike and I was bound and determined to ride it work. I only lived three miles from work.

Mind you, I lived on the highest hill in my city. And I wasn't in the best of shape. Yeppers, I ended up "walking" my bike to work. Lots of hills between the condo and the office. Lots of co-workers driving by and honking at me...

Even the "slow" guy at work teased me relentlessly about that escapade.

Needless to say, the bike remained at the office and was sold to a coworker.

Thanks for the ride down memory lane. Plan B was walking in the parking lot.

You're right, it is the journey!
