A bicycle Theater

Today, I was faced with a troubling dilemma. Allow me to paint the picture.

I have been off work since before Christmas. Today was my last day off. I return to work tomorrow. I wasn't ready for the Christmas season to be over.

I traveled to Louisiana to spend the holidays with my family. While I had a wonderful time, I was not able to ride my bike the past 2 weeks. I really wanted to ride my bike at least once before going back to work. However, the temperature was on the low 20's.

As I said, I spent the holidays with my family. My parents do not have cable or satellite or internet. As a result, I was not able to watch "A Christmas Story", which has become a bit of a tradition on Christmas day.

So as you can see - I was in a bit of a pickle. After much wringing of the hands, I arrived at an amicable solution.

Solution: A bicycle theaterFeature presentation:I'm still not ready to go to work tomorrow, but I was able to get in a 1-1/2 hour bike ride, while all the while extending the Christmas holidays and keeping a tradition alive.
