Retro Tuesday: Miracle!

No it's not what you think....My lovely and trusty bike did not miraculously come back.

The heat was brutal yesterday and I had to walk back home from the bus stop. I don't really like to take the bus because it only runs a couple of hours a day and it's expensive. I'd rather spend that 3.25$ on Pyrex or some cool thrifty stuff!

So I came home hot,sweaty and still sad about the bike. I was taking a dip in the pool when I saw my neighbor who said to me: I heard you had your bike stolen, that's too bad but I have a bike for you. I was going to donate it...It runs great!

And while he's talking I'm thinking OMGOMGOMG is he giving me a bike?. And he says, hold one I'll bring it right away! OMGOMGOMG he's actually bringing a bike over!!!

And here it was...

How cool is it? Look at that blue!

So I ask my neighbor how much he wants for it and he says no it's a gift I was going to donate it anyways!

OMGOMGOMG Thank you so much! You ARE the best neighbor in the whole world!

I'm guessing it's from the 60's.And it was originally sold in a shop near where I live.



Look at those shiny mud flaps! And the springs under the seat!


 I'm so in love with my new bike! And I will not leave it unattended EVER!

It will be locked at all times. We have a brand new bicycle rack downstairs (old but never used) and will install it soon if we can figure out how to install it! Today during my lunch hour I will be visiting Canadian Tire and Zellers to shop for a basket..Oh I almost forgot I need a bell too!

I feel so blessed. I did pray a lot for God to take care of this and he did. I have to figure out a thank you fittting for my neighbor's generosity (He's the one who always fixed the old bike).

Have a happy Retro Tuesday!
