And guess what? She is all mine! Thanks to my THH. Yes he bought her for me. He wanted to buy me a new bike for my birthday.

My old bike has a fat tire and gets one about every 2 months. The Walmart special just isn't a great bike for me. I've had the Walmart special bike for about 5 years. THH also bought that one for me. We ride all over. It is a great Eco-friendly way to cruise Long Beach. I even rode my Walmart special 9 months pregnant garage sailing one day. It creeks and is rusty. The handles are foam and gross. It will always have a special place in my heart.

It was love at first sight. I test drove it. It is smaller than Walmart special. Much better for my shorter frame. The seat fit my big butt. It didn't creek. It is so drool worthy. The lights work, they just need new bulbs which the shop is finding for me. It comes with a bike pump under the body of the frame. We ran home to make sure the bike trailer would fit. When we got back it fit and I test drove it with the trailer and THM. THM said it was better than the Walmart special. THH said he would buy it for me if I loved it, but we could look at the other shops. I knew this was my bike. She fit me. She felt right. So about 3 hours later (went to the bank, had lunch, stopped at rite aid) I got to ride her home.
All mine. We spent the next hour riding bikes. Then went inside and took a restful hour. Then THM rode next to me on his little 12inch bike for an hour. Of course we stopped by OLL apartment and showed it off. At this point THM was so tired he fell down 3 stairs, thank gosh his bike helmet was on. Didn't get hurt but was acting silly because his shoe fell off. Oh to be a 3 yer old again. Now nestled in the dinning room, behind the couch is my new to me 1960s Murray Meteor Flite. .
