The one that got away

January 11, 2013

To the orange Peugeot folder with the wicker basket parked outside the pool yesterday,

the purple Peugeot folder that sailed past my balcony some months back,

the green Raleigh that whizzed past in the same direction the very next day,

to the unidentified shopper that was nearly stacked by its uninitiated rider (new to back pedal brakes she said) outside my garden fence,

to the sky blue Malvern Star with white trimmings that I didn’t have the heart to chase down one stinking hot day last summer,

and to all the little lovelies who have eluded my camera…

this one’s for you.

  1. but will he ever come back to Australia? I’ve been waiting too long.

    • I know. I was lucky enough to have seen him in concert in his only tour here in 1979 at the tender age of 16. Parts of it are still etched in my memory.

  2. I only got to see him on the Paul Hogan show, where Hogan used him as an unwitting fall guy.The whole thing was a sad farce. Thanks for updating my blog info,Mr LBB.

    • You’re welcome. By the way, I am on a mission to increase traffic to my blog from like-minded readers. If you think your readers are like-minded, would you consider adding me to your on links list?

      • Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your blog and wsehid to say that I’ve really enjoyed surfing around your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again soon!

      • hey, thanks for the nice feedback Bashar. My posts are pretty dependent on when I spot a bike, they have been a bit thin on the ground lately. But you’ve reminded me, I have some photos in the wings that I save up for these dry spells, so will try to put something together on the weekend.

    • oh, i just noticed that Ian called me Mr. It’s actually Ms LBB, not that gender really matters in the virtual world…or does it? Interesting question.
