I begged for a horse.

My father had other ideas.
He loved all things motorized.
So when I was in 7th grade He bought me a dirt bike.

My parents and brother each had a bike but they were too tall for me to learn on. These were the reasons he gave me for having a motorcycle over a horse.
  • You only have to feed it when you ride it.
  • You don't have to clean out its stall.
  • You don't have to brush it or exercise it.
  • It doesn't have a mind of its own.
  • It's not afraid of loud noises and will go anywhere you ask it to within reason.
Well, you get the idea. I thanked him over and over for that wonderful first bike. Actually, I still have it and my daughter rides it everyday in the summer.

I love that you named your bike..."doodle bug". My sister and I named our first boat "Lollipop", from the song by Shirley Temple "The Good Ship Lollipop". That was a pretty dorky thing to do, but to us at the age we were, it was perfect!! Thanks for sharing another very cute photo:)
