I remember when I was a little girl, my parents
had put on lay-a-way, my first two wheel bicycle.
I was so thrilled but something happened to
my Dad’s job and we had to move to California
and I didn’t get the bicycle. My heart was crushed.
This image reminds me of those hard times.

I found this wonderful old bicycle at an
antique shop.
