Strangely, I have been selling some BMX bikes at work, too. Mostly to old guys like me, as it turns out. I guess people relive the days of their youth in different ways. Some middle age guys buy Corvettes. Other middle guys by little bikes. Corvettes are slightly more expensive.
Although thoroughly modern under the skin, the very convincing SE Retro bikes really have hit a chord. The mag wheels put them over the top. I take one look at a PK Ripper and I instantly think of Feldon Wicks, the guy responsible for introducing me to BMX racing way back in 1979. Funny, but his PK's and even his Quad Angle's were even more trick than these modern bikes. I wish I could find a photo of his all blacked-out PK with Skyway Graphite Tuff Wheels. Me and my friend Bob worshiped Feldon and the fact that he had bikes clean enough to eat off of made us crazy with envy.
Memory lane. Sometimes it really is good, wholesome fun.

Hanna flies down on the blow-up tubeI don't think anyone knew it was going to snow any more than an inch or so Saturday night. I wasn't happy with the results when I got around on Sunday, but the kids were very pleased. We went to a small hill close to the house and they had a blast.

Hanna just turned 13. We had a get together at the Bucks house last night as we usually do for the January birthday kids.
Max just turned 15. He's almost too cool for these little parties.
It's easy to get Hanna to laugh about something. I'm not sure if Eli is dumbfounded by something or he has a corn chip caught in his throat.
She's smiling because she just got a gift card. Hanna likes gift cards. And sparkly stuff.
Must be another gift card.
Tyson is inside that cardboard box. Tyson likes cardboard.
The birthday kids. Almost not kids anymore.
