My 11 year old daughter gave me this handmade neck warmer/hat. A little bicycle love for daddy.
And my 8 year old son gave me an umbrella holder to put on Boris the Bike. I don’t know if it will fit and I am not really an umbrella kind of person but I wouldn’t dream of not installing it no matter how awkward it looks.
These were the best gifts I got this year and to be sure neither of them were on my list. Santa was good to me.
Santa gave my son a new, blue mountain bike. Santa must have thought my son was a bit taller than he is or maybe he just knows that the boy is growing like a weed because the bike is a 24 inches. The look of excitement and joy on his face were incredible. On Christmas morning we went for a ride in the park and played follow the leader and swung by the local big box bike store to get a back light for his new machine. In the afternoon, we rode around the town looking for geocaches. He was thrilled that he found 2 and his old dad found none.
Santa knows life is better on a bicycle. Merry Christmas from Tokyo Two Wheeling.
