These are the folks responsible for my being. They worked hard, very hard, to provide for us as we were growing up. They provided me with bicycles, as well as many other toys...and some had motors. I mentioned the bicycles because this is a bicycle blog, but it has been getting mushy the last two posts...oh weelll. With age comes wisdom and I can tell you something I have learned, I was not an easy one to raise. If I was to say I was a hellion, it would be an understatement. Is hellion a word? Well, you know what I mean. I owe them more than I can repay. I have truly been blessed to have these people as my parents. We have been neighbors for more than the last 20 years and I feel blessed again. It is not often that your parents are your neighbors and are also your best friends. I Love You Mom and Dad ! !
