The Magical Blue Bicycle Built for Two

A Post Both Past and Present

A neighbor gave my son this wonderful old bicycle, but it needed new tires
and lots of other work too get it up and running.

What a great license plate.

WOW! He did it. It really is road ready!

And they are off! Eloise and Dad.

This turn put them to the test...but they made it.
I about had a heart attack for fear they were going to flip.

Eloise and the tiger. She is fearless.

And here you have my one and only granddaughter.
She’s now 10 years old, in the fifth grade, and LOVES
that hat. As you can imagine, she wears it all the time.

“When I see an adult on a bicycle, I do not despair for the future of the human race.”
~H.G. Wells

If you ask me...every family needs a blue bicycle built for two.


  1. Wonderful to see... she is so lovely X love the hat

  4. What a cute story and pictures. So glad that you are back. I just read the other post that I missed. I know that you have many health issues. I am amazed at all you do. I have felt my body slowing way down this year. But like you said we are so lucky compared to what others are going through. Many HUGS>

  9. A combination of excellent photos that tell a interesting fun story. Well done Genie.

  10. Oh, this is fun, it is a beauty, we call it a tandem here. It is mostly used by eldery people when one of the couple isn't able to cycle on her or his own. Your granddaughter has grown up very fast in your blogabsence, she is a beauty too!
