four play

I came across this meme over at Terri's, and for lack of anything better to do, I did it.

The rules are as follows:

- Go to the folder in which you keep your digital photos.
- Choose the fourth folder.
- Find the fourth picture in that folder.
- Explain.
- Tag four people.

Unlike Terri, I followed the rules and this is the picture I found.

It's Chaco trying out his "new" bicycle which, at the time, was actually my old bicycle. Yes, the poor boy got a hand-me-down bicycle from his MOTHER!

This was nearly 4 years ago. Meego had officially outgrown the child seat that had adorned my bicycle and was heading off to kindergarten *sniff*. To celebrate.... er.... compensate for my loss, I purchased a spanking new Gary Fisher bicycle for myself, now affectionately known as "Bella".

Chaco inherited the minivan of a bicycle shown above. He was happy with it. Note that I had at least removed the toddler seat, lest Chaco be totally scarred for life.

But really, it was a good bike and suited his needs well at the time. He and that old Raleigh logged many a mile before the front shocks totally blew up one day. We purchased a new and mucho macho bicycle for Chaco last spring, and the old mom bike was donated to the bike store to be reworked and reborn as some other needy teen's bicycle.

That's today's meme. Go tag yourself.

You're such a stickler for the rules. But I won't fault you for it, cuz I like you!

Looks like a pretty cool bike to me and you definitely got your money's worth out of it, huh?

Unlike Terri - I shall fault you - you, you, you.., "rule follower you!" I tried to teach you and teach you the fine arts of subtle rule breaking and what do you do?
~ sigh ~

BUT - you redeemed yourself. What a wonderful mom you is for removing the toddler seat for Chaco. I commend you and wont remind you any further of your being a "Rule Follower". Not that theres anything wrong with that.

I might do this Meme one day after New Years. Maybe. sounds interesting. Im kind of afraid to look.
