I Was a Three Year Old Biker Chick

Digging around the old photo albums is always good for a giggle or a memory jog. This picture brings back one of my earliest memories. I was about 3, and Daddy had just gotten his motorcycle. He plopped me on it so I could straddle the gas tank and hold the handlebars and Mommy could take the picture. I was not quite satisfied with that arrangement. 'I wanna ride, Daddy!'

Before Mommy could object too strenuously we were off across those fields in the background. Wind in my face made that handkerchief on my head flap and flutter. Daddy held his hands over mine on the handlebars and I was screaming........




'GO FASTER, DADDY!!!!!!'

FunkyB said...

And then you were hooked, right?

What a sweet story -- every little girl needs her daddy to drive the stallion and set the standard for the future white knight.

You remember when you were three? Wow! I barely remember when I was thirty. Come to think of it, I'm not even sure what state I was in when I turned thirty. I think it was California.

'GO FASTER, DADDY!!!!!!'

Although I do remember as a kid saying this to my father when we'd drive. ;)

OK So I got here via the father's day post. Your dad sounds like all the men I grew up with as a boy.

Doing the right thing at the right time was paramount.

I still think it is!
