Here's A Suburban I Like!


Click on photo to enlarge
Me pointing to a beautiful vintage Schwinn Suburban parked in the bike rack next to us at the Vons supermarket today. The bike belongs to one of my old Post Office customers, Mike Kilian, and he paid $20 dollars for it at a yard sale. Mike had to replace the tires, handgrips and added the collapsible basket.
But for me, the most important part of this picture is in knowing that the site of this shopping center, which is smothered under incredible tons of concrete and asphalt, used to be a lovely mountain meadow at the edge of a wetlands, and was home to countless numbers of native plants and animals.

Jim, you may have created a monster. In trying to comment on something you have posted here, I inadvertantly created my own blog site. What have you done? I know have a blog called wholly words. Help me!

Mercy, how thought provoking your comments are! And I love your site, by the way. It's already in the 70's here, so I'm off to the garden.....
