My dear fiancee remembered me showing this photo to her prior to us shacking up together. It refreshed my memory bank and I knew exactly where to start looking, and it only took a few minutes to rifle through one of my storage bins before I stumbled upon it.  Anyway, my mother looks to be having one heck of a good time.  My cousin Billy was lavished with gifts from my Nana (my mother’s mother), as she adored him quite a bit.  The bike my mother is riding was a gift from Nana.  Here’s a photo from a couple of years later, in my grandparents’ back yard, with me admiring Billy’s cool yellow bike:

I was far too small to ever get to ride his bikes.  By the time I was big enough, they were long gone.  Anyway, I always loved those Stick Shift top-tube mounted shifters.  They weren’t the best for boys if you needed to stop short, but man, were they cool….
