What's left...

Stripped_2More poor Trek 930 -- it now looks like a turkey carcass two days after Thanksgiving. The bicycle thief (that's a polite way of putting it) came back and stripped more parts. Never in my crookedest dreams would I think someone would steal old brakes - yes brakes - off a bike. I couldn't bare to take a photo of it, hence the diagram. I hadn't figured out what I was going to do with the bike, so I left it locked up outside as usual. Now, it's awful.

I wish I could say that this wasn't part of Life on the Hill. Sadly, it seems to be on the rise. Someone stole Russ' scooter on Thursday when he parked, locked the steering column and ran in to CVS Pharmacy for 5 minutes to pick up a prescription - in the middle of the day! It's ridiculous. Our district (Ward 6) has called a meeting to talk about the problem and what more can be done.

In other news, on Friday I did go swimming afterall and did better than last week. As a reward, I bought myself a new suit - my favorite reversible racerback by TYR. I really didn't like the straps on the Speedo that I had been wearing.

On Saturday, I went for a 2.5-hour ride and it was nice. On Sunday, my sis Jen, Russ, Wayne, Bill, Eric and I spent the afternoon playing volleyball and badminton, then had a picnic. That was also nice. Today, Russ bought a new scooter.

There is no way I would leave my bike out of sight. That is why I had to get a different car. People in this world today think that if you are not sitting on it, it's fair game. The same goes with anything that you leave in your car.
