Where Is My Red Bicycle?
I was feeling bad this afternoon when I took a nap. I was dreaming my daughter and I had left my new red bicycle at Joske's Of Texas and we were begging John to take us there in his truck and park by the curb while we ran in to see if it was still there. He didn't want to drive us there so I woke up without knowing if my new red bicycle was there or not.. I had a birthday about a month before Mel died and he had bought me a new red bicycle. I had been riding a very old one. He put nice hooks in the top of the garage to hang it on. I was strong at that time and could raise my arms up to lift it past the hooks and bring it down. I didn't ride it right away because I was ill at the time and then when he passed away I wasn't thinking of riding a bicycle or much else. When I did go out to get it down and ride it was gone. Then I remembered coming home to find the garage door ajar but thought I had accidently left it open. Now I have another old red bicycle I bought for $12.00 or $15.00 from a man on a San Antonio corner selling fruits and vegetables and one bicycle. I told him I would buy it if he could get it into the trunk of my Ford Fairlane Sports Coupe which I had then. He did and I still have that old bicycle and ride is once in a while. I wonder who has my pretty red bicycle now and why did I dream about it now?
