Me and Red.....My Bike....

Me and Red, thought it would be a good idea to get outside today. She smiled at me so innocent like. "C'mon, let's go, let's go." I sort of shook my head and walked by her. "UGH! No, I'm crampy, and cranky and it's too frikkin hot out!"

She sighed and sat right where she was.

I couldn't resist her sleek little body, her three tires and that comfy, comfy seat. Her little purple bell and that clean white basket on the back.

"OK! Ok!" I said, "Let me get the dog in her harness."

I got all of out stuff together. Water bottle, cell phone, sneakers, leash.... I pushed her out the door and got in the elevator.

She was so excited. She loves to be outside. She loves the feel of the pavement on her "feet". No sooner did I put foot to pedal and we were OFF!! Like a shot. the wind blew in my face, my dog ran beside us smiling. Red, red just swished and rolled and shimmied around every corner. We pulled over halfway around. We stopped in the shade. The sun was beating down on us and I was sweating. Red laughed, not even out of breath. "Oh Frannie, you will get used to it. Before you know it, you'll be riding for miles and miles."

I scowled at her. Perturbed. She was mocking me. I gathered the pup back onto her leash and we were off again. 4 more corners, some bumps and a dip..... back where we started. Red squeaked at me and I patted her gently. "Thanks for the ride, Red."

I got her back upstairs and's sooo hot....... and still I can feel her eyeing me....ready to go out again!!!

Yes, I know I'm INSANE!! I take medication it's ok.
