Birdhouse and Bicycle

Saturday, June 15, 2013

Some fun things this weekend:

1) DS and DIL came over yesterday evening and DH grilled hot dogs and hot links. I prepared things that I knew were there favorite side items plus a cold dessert. The newlyweds brought DH's Father's Day gift, which was perfect for him since he is a bird watcher and loves our RV:

2) Today DH finished working on my bike. I purchased it at a garage sale a few years ago and it promptly went into a shed. It wasn't doing much good there, was it? That was before I retired, and this is the start of my fifth year of retirement. DH bought new tires, did some sanding and painting. DH says he thinks maybe the bike is 50 years old. That's okay - I am about to turn 55.

DH told me that my youngest SD said she would get herself a bike and helmet and ride with me. Now that would be a good thing, wouldn't it? Spreading the Spark!

    I love the birdhouse and it was a very thoughtful and cute gift. As for the bike, you are lucky to have one of the vintage models that you still can brake with your feet! Be sure and ride with a helmet and go have fun. Perhaps you'll even get a riding partner.

    WELL DONE I love bike riding but these days I have a major "SEAT" problem. I have tried so many different seats over the past few months but so far none good. DH and I tried to side a week or so ago he cycled all over England when he was younger. After his hip surgery he is unable to get on the bike his usual way because of the Men's bike cross bar.
We are trying to find the solution. We are in fact hoping to do that tomorrow. Well done. Nice fathers day company and really cool gift. Well done Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Tammy, the RV birdhouse is cute - hope birds will use it.

Your bike is probably at least 55 years old! emoticon
My father bought a used bike and painted it red and white when I was 9; it looked just like yours. Your picture brings back such good memories.
