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.
It looks easy and fun. I gave it a few tries and then I gave up. The “thing” just pulled me to one side. Dad is a tall man and the bike was set for his height, and I couldn’t keep it straight on the road. I dare you to give it a try if you have a chance!
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”!!!
