I couldn't get off the bike easily after my 1/2 hour ride and that is not a pretty site for passerbyers. When an older woman is stuck with one leg over the seat - they hesitate to help but you can't really tell them "that's OK it's just my bum is bruised!!" Anyway, after suffering for a month or so I took the problem in hand with the help of an allen key and good friend and bought THE most comfortable seat I could afford!
Now he lives one block away and is going thru some major health problems but he is still there for my parents when they need him and they have been there for him. Anyway, he deserves a pair of socks more than anyone I know at the moment so these are for him. And he makes the best baklava I have ever tasted!
And the photo is much closer to good colour - thanks for the advice Jejune.
By the way - I love being in blogland. I have talked to people I have had a secret crush on for years, made new friends and impressed old friends (that's fun too). I feel like I have found a whole new community to be part of and I like it. So thanks and happy trails.
