The Tricycle Summit

Here's blonde Earl again at the far left. This photograph was taken sometime in the early 1970s in Thompson, Manitoba. I barely remember the house, and I don't remember the other children at all. Who were they and where are they now, I wonder?

I do, however, remember the tricycle. I was very fond of it. If it were midsummer and I suddenly came into possession of an adult-sized trike, I'd quite happily ride it 'round the park, legs pumping perhaps not quite as quickly as they once could, but pumping nonetheless with great nostalgic enthusiasm.

I have fond memories of my tricycle too! Mine wsa red, had rockets on the hand grips, with ribbon streamers coming out of the hole at the end. I could pedal faster then anyone I knew, and I loved the feeling of freedom as I raced around the block by the sidewalk.

You had rockets on the hand grips? Lucky you!
