Audrey and MeganA long time ago, I had a big brother who was allowed to ride his bike to many places I was not allowed to ride to.  Occasionally, he let me ride on the cross bar and we would go to Sam and Ellies, a candy store to far away for me to go to by myself.  I would have $.25 to buy treats with.  I could spend $.15 on candy, and $.10 on pretzel rods or other treats.  Often we would bring home an ice cube chocolate for Momma, one of her favorite candies.

Sometimes, Joe would even take me to Burger Chef and treat me to something special.Bike  Fries and tarter sauce are still one of my favorite treats, though I am not sure if that is Joe’s fault or Mom’s.

Today was a beautiful day for riding bikes.  I let the girls ride up and down the road for awhile.  Then we put Megan on the crossbars, just to see if she would enjoy it.  Of course, she thought it was wonderful.

When Mark got home from science class, Audrey persuaded him to take her for a spin. They did not go very far, but they had a lot of fun. I sort of wish that there was a nearby store that they could ride to and enjoy their own sibling dates.
