Melody Spoke


T O D (aka Middle Girl) and I have been spending a bit more time together. It is still exclusively weekend days for now. But soon, hopefully a weekday or two can factor into the mix.

It feels good to be able to help T O D get her rolls on. Though I do feel like she's struggling to achieve a nice and easy rotation, a glorious glide. A few more times out should help that. Right? I'm hoping. I do so enjoy being out and about.

Our little jaunts have taken us to the library, post office, parks, and a grocery store. It is the grocery store I take issue with. Well, not the store,.they were nice and caring enough to install a rack for the two-wheelers. but look, just LOOK at how some person parked their . . Billy? Jack? I didn't know his name, but LOOK at THAT!?!

I admit, I was angry for a moment but I recovered and found a spot to nestle my frame there, on the end. It was fine. I didn't even mind the sun as there was a pretty nice breeze. T O D came out with more bags than I thought I cold carry. But, I did swell. It turned out to be a glorious outing.

Here's to rolling along.

  1. I wish people knew how to park a bike! But then again, I can't figure out some of these newfangled "designer" racks either.

    Our heat wave finally broke today so I hope to be out rolling too. Here's to all our adventures being downhill : )

    1. Racks in town are pretty basic. The big city has some of those "designer" racks. Reason number 220 why I won't ride (my own bike) in the big city.

      I have beaten the heat by getting out very early. Though, post sunset rolling is in the near future.

      Yay to downhill. :-)

    1. With the help of choosing wisely, careful packing, a basket, backpack, and equitable handlebar distribution--smooth sailing the six or so blocks home.

    2. Though, I have been known to overreach. ;-)

  3. Love biking, though that is the most obnoxious bike-parker in the world.

  4. Love this. The person who took up the whole rack, not so much. It makes me want to put air in my bike tires and thoroughly inspect my bike helmet for spiders (both live in the shed, and I'm terrified of a mid-ride spider discovery in my hair...).

    1. By all means clear the webbies from the helmet. :-)

  5. Ugh. Jerk! Is there no limit to the entitled attitude?

    Super happy for you, Melody, that TOD is getting her ride on. Enjoy those trips! Many more coming...

    1. I'm beginning to think not.

      We (I believe I can speak for TOD) are happy too. More, Yes!

  6. Do you suppose the person on that bike thought that is how one SHOULD park their bike? I'm really just scratching my head over this one.

    1. Anything is possible. I s'pose.
