I named her Shiny. Any Firefly fans out there? Well you should be!
Yesterday I took my red Huffy bike to Backdrop Sports in Everett. I got as far as I could with fixing up the bike and I wanted someone to give it a good look over. Andy at Backdrop Sports was super helpful! He showed me what he was going to do to the bike and then he showed me what he was doing as he worked on it. He kept it overnight to check for leaks in the tires and tuned a few other things. I’m very happy that I took my bike to Backdrop Sports! I have found my bike guy! If you’re in Everett, WA and you’re looking for a bike shop, or ski/snowboard shop, go visit Andy!
My fabulous friend at Luminous Vegans sent me these two hand-pulled screen printed posters. Her dear partner, N, printed them. Check out his work at Epic Problems. I love Mission of Burma and I was super excited to get this little guy in the mail. I can’t wait to have it framed!
I love screen printed posters! They look so much better than glossy cheap posters. This poster is for a show that N’s band played in. Luminous Vegans will have a mighty good surprise coming their way!
Right now I’m reading “Bold Spirit.” The book is about Helga Etsby and her walk across America in 1896. Right now in the book they’re discussing the new skirts women started to wear when bikes became more popular. Skirts were now a little shorted so women could ride their bikes in a safer manner. I love how bikes were referred to as “the devil’s agent.” I think that’s what I’m going to name my vintage Huffy bike. My Giant Rincon is named AT-AT and now the Huffy will be referred to as The Devil’s Agent.
I wish someone who crocheted would make one for me. I can knit…but I do not crochet. It makes no sense to me…I’m a knitter!
