Virginia and I took a couple of
evenings to put together the wreaths on the back of the tandem.
They were made using paint and ribbon from Michaels, cardboard
from SAP's recycling stream, and hot glue from my gun. We were
looking forward to an evening of rolling with friends and looking
at Christmas lights. The theme for the evening was "Ugly
Ugly sweater-dress is close enough
to on theme for me. So is ugly hair.
Willie (or was it his wife?) did
another heart warming Christmas display this year.
Lloyd explained that his red sweater
hadn't been ugly enough. He solved the problem by taking the time
to sew on a paper snowman. Dude! That is one ugly sweater...
This vendor seem to be doing well
enough. I see the same guys over and over, so I guess bike party
works for them. Works for me!
After the regroup I gave Virginia
the camera to take pictures from the back of the tandem as we rode
along. She took most of the rest...
We birded at San Carlos & Bascom
until the rest of the ride had gone by. At first it was a river of
lights going by. It took me a while to get bored enough to get out
my camera. After that it was not many more, and most of those
hadn't decorated. I got a few pictures though.
Happy holidays, and I hope to see
you on your bicycle sometime next year!
