Hello Pretty Lady

Well, she's arrived. I picked her up today.

Who's she?


Don't you remember?

Betsy Lucy. Prettiest bike in the world. Well, MY world anyway.

Although I am wavering on her name.

But only because we had a loss in our family today too... my dad's cousin Kathleen - a lovely, lovely lady, who was more like a sister to him than his own sorry-excuse-for-a-human-being sister - had a massive stroke on Thursday night and passed away.

She never married or had children of her own but she was a dedicated teacher and always took a big interest in my life. So I'm considering making the bike Betsy Kathleen. Or Kitty Lucy. And I do that with the highest regard for my lovely cousin and in complete respect. And because really, I might never be able to name a child after her... who knows whether it will happen for me or not?

So anyway. Welcome to my world Betsy. And farewell Kathleen. Say hello to my dad for me.

I like Kitty too... I'm still undecided though, although I have been trying out Kitty Lucy on her.
