“When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.”

Emo Philips (American comedian, b. 1956)

TIME:  9:26 PM
PLACE:  Dining room
SUBJECT:  Schwinn Plaque

Tomorrow evening is our town’s annual community bicycling event.  A 15 (or 6) mile ride through the city begins 9pm.  MB had outgrown his current bike, so we bought a “new to him” older Schwinn model.  According to it’s serial number, it was built in February of 1980 – that’s 32 years ago.  He says it’s retro.  What? 1980 is considered retro?  Now I feel old.
