Throwback Thursday

It's 64 oF at 3 PM. It's so warm outside. I'm loving it. It reminds me of Christmas 1965 (I was 10 yrs old), when I got a bicycle for Christmas. I don't remember how warm it was, but there was no snow or ice on the ground. I was able to ride my beautiful, new bike outside.

It looked like this Lincoln green one. I associated the Lincoln green with Robin Hood and it was my second color choice. Mine was a blue beauty with handbrakes. A couple of years later, I would be allowed to turn the corner and could ride across town to my friend's house.

When we were 15 years old, we were allowed to ride to downtown Wellesley (next town over) to shop. Our favorite hangout was the Hathaway Book Store across the street from Wellesley College. A house had been converted into the shop and every room was crammed with books. After browsing the book store, we would go next door to Bailey's Ice Cream. It was an old-fashioned ice cream parlor. They served ice cream in silver ice cream dishes. The hot fudge sauce cascaded onto a silver charger. There was also an odd looking water cooler where we could get endlessly, free paper cups of water.
