Mr. Rogers Would Be So Pleased

It is an absolutely beautiful day in the neighborhood and I have taken full advantage of it; earlier, I walked to the local park and ran laps around the hiking trail, clocking in at just over three and a half miles in just under an hour.

Then, I threw on a light cardigan and some capri pants and rode Lulu to the store to pick up the daily cash to take to the bank. When I told Hugh that I was planning to ride Lulu through the drive-through lane, and to honk my ooga-ooga horn for service, he was two parts incredulous and three parts mortified but; I did it anyway.

For the record, the girls at the bank love Lulu. In fact, they were so gushingly complimentary; I suggested that they each purchase a similar bike and that we start a club. If we do, I'm thinking we might be able to get a volume discount on cup holders; it's worth investigating, anyway.

In other news, today is the first day of Spring Break for the children. Currently, we are hosting a number of their friends, making me even more grateful for the lovely weather simply because the children can play outside. But, not anywhere near my Lulu. I consider myself a kind person but I draw the line at sharing Lulu.
