I love old pictures as readers know. I also can't understand why some families don't cherish their old snapshots of family. The top picture above is an unknown person......cast aside by family who didn't want the old photos. He seems to be so proud of his bicycle and it, as my husband says, was a NICE bicycle.
The second picture above is a picture of my husband and his sister and his little brother. With bikes! The bike that he is beside was not a nice bike, as he remembers it. If you look closely at his right leg you will see that he had to keep his pants rolled up so it didn't catch in the chain since it had no cover. He said his first bike had no wheel covers either. But he loved it!
My first bike was a definite used one, too, with no pedals, just a metal piece that you put your feet on but I was SO thrilled to find that bike on the front porch as a surprise gift.
Didn't we all love our bicycles!!!
