I know. It is not Valentine's day or even close but this old blog that I did several years ago talking about a Valentine Queen for Searcy was fun then and is still fun now. This cutie in the photo and what she replied is meaningful today because it shows that history repeats itself. The picture of a girl on a boy's bike was a bit of a scandal back in the 1940's when it was taken. Please go now to this old blog and read it.
Are you back? Now if you did not take time to read the many comments, I will show you what the no-longer-little-girl said.
""To answer the comments about the boys bike: I got this bike for Christmas, one Christmas during "the war" (WWII).....there were no new bicycles to be bought in Searcy and no girl's bike could my parents find. This was a used bike. I, too, was sorta embarrased to have a boy's bicycle, but that was the best they could do, and I did, indeed, have wheels."
Now you might see the way history is repeating itself right now. Trying to find items right now has become difficult. They are not available in many cases. Someone sold a side-by-side vehicle for more than they'd paid for it when new.
And did you notice in the blog how cute she was on the "running board?" No more running boards available!!!
