A Tricycle Ride

To ride on an adult tricycle looks like a piece of cake. That’s what I thought. And I had these wonderful plans for my remaining time here in Vaggeryd. I was going to ride around town on Dad’s tricycle. Remember that he wanted that for a birthday present?

They have something called “Blocket” here in Sweden. That’s were you can sell and buy things and not have to pay the price of a new article. My sister found a tricycle in a town not too far from here and while I was enjoying my visit in Tidan they went to get the bike on three wheels.

My plans to buy me one of these contraptions to drive around the neighborhood back home have come to an abrupt stop. I will keep my bike. I haven’t ridden it for quite some time because I tore a ligament in my knee. It happened while I was biking somewhat up-hill. I miss my bicycle rides! I’ll give it a try once more.

While Dad was cycling I borrowed his walker. Enjoy some of the pictures I took on my short walk. There is a lake down the road.

The fall colors are coming quickly. I’m putting together all the “yellows” I photographed on my trip home from Tidan. Tomorrow will do for that. But the big “news” of the day was the tricycle! Try driving one if you have a chance. This evening Ola brought home a helmet, so tomorrow Dad will be a “safe driver”!!!

About kelund

My name is Kerstin Anderas-Lundquist. I was born in Sweden to Per & Brita Anderas, on March 6, 1946. In 1948 we left to begin a missionary life in Chile; in 1956 we moved on to Peru. On May 1, 1969 I married an all-Swedish guy from Karslkrona: Bengt Göran Emanuel Lundquist. God blessed us with two daughters: Eva-Marie Elizabeth and Ruth Carina. We served as missionaries in Peru and Bolivia. In 1988 we moved to the United States to work at Life Publishers in Miami, Florida. I was to assist in developing the line of Sunday School Curriculm in Spanish known as Vida Nueva. I live in Springfield, Missouri, and am retired from work at the Assemblies of God Headquarters. My husband and daughter Eva-Marie have been promoted to Heaven. Carina is married to Thom Cole and they have given me four gourgeous grandchildren, even five (teen-age John). I will be writing about my life, past and present, blended with visions for the future. My deepest desire is to spread the “seed of love”–inspiration to serve God and our neighbors with love and compassion.
