Bicycle Wheels (189/365)

2011 07 08 _MG_3292w
“I'm lazy. But it's the lazy people who invented the wheel and the bicycle because they didn't like walking or carrying things.”

Lech Walesa (Polish trade union Activist, Electrician and President of Poland (1990-95). Nobel Prize for Peace in 1983. b.1943)

TIME:  6:54 PM
PLACE:  Dad’s back yard
SUBJECT:  Rear bicycle tires

Tonight our town has it’s 6th annual bike ride which raises funds for safety equipment and provides a recreational opportunity for individuals and families in the community.  I wanted to ride in it last year, but had a scheduling conflict with having to pick up MonkeyBoy from scout camp on the same evening.  This year, MB and I were going to ride, but I couldn’t with my stupid broken wrist. *grrrr*  It all worked out though…with me being out of commission, it allowed HH and I to lend our bikes to my California brother and nephew, so they could ride along with my dad.  MB is riding as well.  Hopefully, next year will be the year that I participate dammit!

bentonflocke - The wrist is getting better each day now. The physical therapist is very pleased with my progess and thinks I should be back to 95-99% when all is said and done.
