Meet LuLu

      A big package came on a truck while I was gone yesterday. 

I didn't get home until late so I had to wait until this morning to open it.

Inside the box was a tangle of tubes, all wrapped in bubblewrap and foam packaging.

I pulled it out of the box in the garage, put on the seat and handlebars . . .

unfolded it . . .

and there she is.  I named her LuLu after the friend I lost recently (a great suggestion from Paid in Chickens, thank you very much!).  And she even came with a bell
"You're off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So . . . get on your way!"
Dr. Seuss, Oh, The Places You'll Go


  1. Oh I'm delighted for you! It was meant to be if she came with a bell ;) I can't wait to see you two getting up to mischief xx All my love PiC xxx
