Back at her shack…Rose got these cute planters in the FREE section of Unique Finds:
Or: Go out and enjoy your neighborhood, like this dad and his little girl!
The toughest urban-scape, the prettiest pink bike helmet!
The poorest people, the best memories!
The bleakest intersection …
… the most adept riding!
Past the junked cars, sloping three decker porches, cracked pavement, dirty clotheslines, high fences topped with barbed wire.
Under the ugly bridge to …
… dead factory world.
Memories are made here, too!
Make your childhood memories, lil’ girl!! Ride through the weeds and the poverty. Wearing your pink bike helmet!
Your father loves you so! I can see that from my car window, on my way home to my nearby apartment: You wear the helmet, daddy doesn’t. You ride in the inside, daddy on the outside, with traffic. He is smiling – broadly – having fun! So proud of you!
Little city angel riding your bike so fast with daddy! With such confidence! The way city kids do!
Home soon…to supper? Snacks?… In the late fall and winter the kitchen windows fog up with all the frying and boiling… That’s the way it was in our Lafayette Street tenement when I was a little kid. I’d ride my little bike with its rusty handle bars through the streets of Green Island. I named my bike “Rusty”!
