My present

This is my new bike--courtesy of Sparky for Christmas!! I have been wanting one for ages & found this one online at Wal-Mart after seeing it featured on a Today show segment. Well, I was looking at a recliner when Sparky was shopping for a chair (we redecorated his living room) & he told me "I will get it for you if you want since you haven't told me what you want Santie to bring you" Well, I took that opportunity to mention the beach cruiser. So.....That's what I got. I hadn't ridden a bike in at least 40 years but I just hopped on & took off (Sparky found the bike at our local store so no need to ship it--YEAH!!). I am so stoked to have it. Right now it is sitting in my spare bedroom & I ride whenever the weather permits. I am still building up my stamina (I was in worse shape than I thought), but I am planning on riding everyday come Spring, Summer, Fall. This will be a big boon to my weight loss program (10-12 lbs already). Also, I will be able to take one of the furbabies with me on leash to trot along beside--I watch a lot of the Dog Whisperer LOL. Anyway, that is my Christmas present. Happy peddling to me!!








Blessed be...

We never forget to ride a bike, huh? But, a few years ago, I attempted to turn a cart wheel, and, ummm, we may forget how to do that.

You got a bike too and had been eyeing for awhile? Wow! Our minds are closely connected. I too realized my stamina is not what it once was but I am determined to ride more once the weather is warmer. I'm glad you received the gift you wanted. Take care
