William Pedals On, a new blog worthy of your notice


Here's a link to Austinite (nowadays) William Hudson's new blog. You'll enjoy all of it, I think. I have only looked at the first three posts - the first, about William's 'great grandfather Greevz, is great. That's Greevz in the ancient newspaper article above.

But the third post is about racing trikes, no kidding. I haven't seen one in years and hardly seen a photo. How did William know? All those great photos....

I look forward to many visits to Williampedalson online, and many visits with William in real time....

Just as an aside, I am jealous that William knows anything at all about his great-grandfather in "the old country." I knew my grandparents when I was a kid, but could never speak with them because they spoke no English. I know a little about my parents' lives before I was born, probably only what they felt it was instructive for me to know, but that's the limit of my family history.

Sigh....

This is a great connection. Old Geezers riding -- keeps me hoping. "Balance might be your issue," sayeth the doctor.

"I'll ride a damn trike," came the snarling reply.

My Dad rides but here's just a babe, 82.

Keep riding -- it'll keep you smiling!
