lilac ride


Alice likes to go on rides around the neighbourhood and pick flowers when she visits friends. On moderately warm days like these, she finds it perfect. Saucy wears her peg jeans, a long striped tee and her wayfarer sunglasses. She takes a break from her housework and she and Alice take a short spin.


Because Alice likes to pretend that it's not 2011, the iPod plays Jimmy Durante, old Motown hits and the songs that make Saucy remember her childhood. In the seventies, people took their bikes to do errands around the neighbourhood where Saucy grew up and The Fan and Secret Weapon still live. Saucy dropped off Veto's drycleaning and stopped at the fruit stand and it felt just like 1975... have a sweet summer day, friends.

Glad to see that you & Alice are making the most of our short Canadian summers. The photo of the lilacs is beautiful.

ahem.....wearing a helmet of course dear Saucy? You must keep that creative, pretty brain all in tact! Maybe you can come and ride after Fos...I can't keep up with him anymore, too fast on his strider! One more week until baby......Purple lilacs always remind me of Grandma K!

Biking makes me feel all retro, too.

Love this post! The only thing wrong with it, is that you didn't pick those lilacs out of my back yard, or did you?!!
