Today is Ruby Tuesday, again.
It is hosted by the Teach at Work of the Poet. You can find links to many more red-themed photos over there.
Here we see my neighbor's bike helmet. Oh my goodness! I just realized that it's my friend, Mason's helmet. Mason and his family (his sister Taylor has been featured here a few times) moved a few weeks ago. As I was looking through my photos tonight, I saw the red helmet and thought, a-ha! not even thinking until about the owner of the helmet until my second read through. I sure hope they are settling into their new home. Mason is in the 8th grade, not an easy time of life for a school change.
Anyway........My town, Chico, CA, was named one of the top US bike towns back in 1997. I'm sure it's got to be even higher ranked now with bike paths are all over town, bike lanes on most major streets. When I first moved here, 15 years ago, I was nervous driving alongside the bikes. Now it's nothing - I give them room and we are okay. When I'm riding my bike, I make eye contact with the drivers, it's the only way that I can know that they see me. I teach my girls this, as well.
Happy Ruby Tuesday to you!
