It amazes me how we want something so much, then get it and use it for fill in the blank amount of time, then put it somewhere to forget about it; no longer having that feeling of desire. Reminds me of a scene in one of the “Toy Story” movies. It also makes me wonder if parts of this bicycle feel neglected, wondering what it did wrong that it’s being “punished” and left in the elements to rust…for grass to grow up in amongst the spokes. Is the grass its new friend/companion, keeping it warm on a cold night? What kind of conversations might they have?

  1. The rusty chain reminds me of my motorcycle. Those chains have to be lubed pretty often because once they start to rush its bad. Replacements are over $100 installed. I think I went though 5 on my last bike!


    1. I had no idea that motorcycle chains were that expensive or that they had to be kept lubed. Do they make covers for motorcycles like they have for cars?


      1. Yes but mine was in a closed shed all year round. They last about 25,000 miles if you’re lucky but road salt eats them like candy. Some things are worth the price, especially if you have no choice. Happy St Patrick’s day Debbie.


      2. I’m surprised to hear that you’ve gone through 5 chains even with it being in a shed. I feel lucky that I don’t have to deal with road salt here in Southern California. Hope you had a great St. Patrick’s Day, Mike.


    1. Now that I have my new camera, the only thing I want are some prime lenses for it…outside of that, there’s not much I want or need. That book we read on minimalism really changed my view on how I want to live a simple life without clutter.


      1. We both read the same book, “goodbye, things” by Fumio Sasaki. I remember us commenting on it after one of your posts. With amazon prime “Decluttering at the Speed of Life” can be read for free. I just downloaded it yesterday and just need to make time to read it.
