Bicycle blues

This time last year I was biking all over Ocean Springs. Feb. 6, 2009, was a Sunday, and my husband Walter and I biked a few blocks to church. After lunch we biked more than three miles to the Grace Church Gulf Coast property for a look at our church's new buildings under construction. It was a challenging but invigorating ride for this slightly wobbly cyclist. The day was sunny; temperatures were cold but not frigid.

Extreme cold, rain and family matters have limited Skupien family bicycle excursions in 2010. So far this year, my red bike has waited unused on our screened porch, and I visit it on my way out to our compost pile. But I am still hoping!
