The Blue Bike

A few weeks ago my sister and her husband bought N2 a new bike. While they were at Woodcock, N3 was zooming around on a pedal-less push bike.

For the next while, all he talked about was 'My blue bike'.

Last summer, The Geek found a little bike on one of her garbage eve trips.
She took it apart, fixed the brakes, and painted it blue.
The magenta rims are all that is left of the original colour, but it gives the little bicycle a bit of pizazz. The Geek intentionally left off the crank, since N3 doesn't know what to do with pedals anyway.
N3 likes the bike, but it is a bit too big, and he can't touch the ground.
The Geek modified it slightly, but it was still too big. So she modified it more and while it doesn't have the same curb appeal,
he can touch the ground. It will be only a matter of time before he is off to the races.
