I bought a bike! Courtland and I were walking home from breakfast this morning and passed and estate sale and there it was. This little black mountain bike. Nobby tires, 10 speeds, you name it. I didn’t have the money on me so I went on home and hemmed and hawed about it. Then I went back and on the way said “OK. If it’s still there then I’ll buy it. If it’s gone, it wasn’t meant to be.”

I went back, the bike was still there, I bought it and rode it home. It needs a little love and a good tune-up at the local bike shop, but it’s all mine. I haven’t had a bike since I was…I think I was 14 the last time I had a bicycle.
