Beer, Bike & Blustery Weather
Huge rainstorms came through our area yesterday afternoon and evening and while the rain continued this morning, the winds had quieted considerably.
Nonetheless, the threat of stormy weather remained. But we shed our fears and bravely drove to a USPS/UPS/FedEx shipping store to mail a package.
I bravely waited in the car. Glancing around, I espied a bike in front of the liquor store. It was so forlorn standing alone in the rain.
Then the rain began to fall harder. A young man came out of the liquor store. He carried a 12-pack of beer which he fit into a basket on the front of the bike. Shaking his head a few times to shed the wetness in his hair, he wiped his eyes (see photo above), and rode off into the sunset.
(Of course you know it was raining and all this took place in the morning, so there was no sunset.)
Actually, I don't know where he rode off to, but I felt a wee bit sorry that he had to brave Mother Nature to bring his treasure home. I probably should have offered to help by taking the package off his hands.
