East Rider

My friend bought herself a bike, a big bike.
A Honda 750, I believe.

I have never wanted a motorcycle, not even to ride on the back.

I am not jealous of her wheels. I am jealous of her joy. I hear it in her voice. I see it in her face

Every journey begins

Every journey begins with a single step.
My journey began some time ago. What I didn't notice was, that while there were many paths to follow and many sidetracks to tempt me, there is no back track.

I know I'm old

In the market  I went looking for a small bottle of ketchup.  That never happened when my boys were about.
We buy apples in threes, one for him and one for me, and one for whom ever enjoyed their first. Then we shop again.

Recently the maple syrup went moldy.

"How long has it been since we made pancakes?" he asked.
