My Morning Ride.....Really Green Power


Truth be told, I rarely ride all the way from our house in the near Eastern Townships to my lab out on the far Western edge of Lotusland anymore.

Mostly I park partway there, pull the bike out of the (notso)Microbus, and start peddling.


This morning I parked by Chaldecott Park which is smack dab in the center of the Creme Belt where King Edward comes to forest-edged end.

It is also the spot where a small school bus picks up a gaggle of school kids to take 'em to one of the local high-priced cloisteries.


As I'm fiddling with my front wheel I notice this little girl, about the same age as little e., hop out of her Dads's SUV and immediately spread 'em.

Initially, I couldn't figure out what the heck was going on as the father approached her shaking his right hand.

A shake-down looking for a contraband I-Pod Touch or three hidden in her knee socks perhaps?


Turns out it was a most thorough sun screen spray-down instead.

(surprisingly enough, there was no sign of helicopters hovering overhead)
