My Buddy Is Back

Yes, I rode to work today.

And, my buddy is back.

I wonder if his return is related to the beginning of school. I suspect many a household schedule is changing this week. Speaking of change, I wasn't imagining it, there were more children at the bus stops. A large charter school with multiple locations closed this summer and dumped an estimated 3300 students back onto the public school district.

Happily there didn't seem to be as much chaos going on this morning. I'm looking forward to routines developing. I'm not complaining. One of the things I love about commuting on the Symba is being in the midst of neighborhoods living out their life, of witnessing the different seasons of activity.

Also, on the morning ride I noticed in my review mirror an old Honda passport. We were at a long light and I tried to catch a picture. Didn't get the bike hardly at all and I'm afraid the camera focused more on my fingers than the rider, still it seems fun. Don't you think he looks friendly even if a little blurry?  

  • 64F with a few clouds for the ride to work.
  • 80F and overcast for the home ride.


  1. How can he not look friendly, he is riding a motorized two-wheeler...

  2. Sure, he looks friendly. And somewhat anxious. No doubt wanting to get on with whatever he is aiming for.

    1. Martha,
      When I talk to him he wags his whole body. I've always suspected if he were able, he'd run to me and roll over on his back.

    1. LOL Oh dear, I thought you were talking about the doggy.

      The guy on the old Honda underbone did seem intent on getting going.
