A friend from Pentwater, Shelly, rides her bike around town and down to the beach and posts a cute little summary on Facebook that she calls the Bike & Beach Report. However, this important service was recently in jeopardy due to a broken brake cable.
Shelly was dismayed to learn that the bike shop down her way had already closed for the season, and was asking where else she might take her bike to be fixed.
Well, I hadn't seen her in a coon's age, and that's such a simple job, I said I'd do it. Today was the day!
Her husband, Larry, is having sight issues, so he couldn't do it alone, but every job needs a good supervisor.
Of course, the work needed to be tested, so we took a spin around town. Let me tell you, on a windy, chilly day, the report from the beach is "empty."
Shelly treated me to lunch and Larry washed my car! Plus, I got to visit with them. I really haven't seen them in a long time. I'm sure I got the best end of the whole deal.
We were smiling! (And I had to use this picture, because how often do I get to be the tall one?)
Now, the Bike & Beach Report is saved for the season, until the snow flies.
