someone stole my bike. evidently life is not just flowers and blue skies.

I couldn't think of a photo to say 'stolen bike' because I was out doing plant stuff all day. it calmed me down. the creep will no longer suffer great pain, just something like an eternal bad back.

patriot and canadian do not work together. we have a sense of humour. we export our comedy to the US all the time. they are in need of a good laugh.

shadow is a bmw motorcycle in repose. such lovely design, but the shadow said it best.
does never surrender mean we are about blue skies not bike theft? it is so hard sometimes.

I wish your thieves piles, athlete's foot, ringworm, pilonidal cysts, mouth ulcers, alopecia, gingivitis, halitosis and dyshidrotic eczematous dermatitis. All at once.
For starters.
Great pics though - waiting for Clint to ride over the horizon in #2.

Gorgeous pics. Geesh, I wish I had a classier camera phone. And thanks for the welcome, btw :) yay Canada. Actually, I have unlimited pic sending/texting, so I'm all set. This is my first phone though, and it was like 80 bucks. and about the cheapest flip I could find :P

the shadow's fantastic, I would never have guessed...
...and about the thief as the captain Haddock would say: mille milliards de mille sabords espèce de cannibale, bachi-bouzouk, ravachol, vandal, ectoplasme, extrait de cornichon, rapace etc.....

thank you for the condolences. I never want to be on H's bad side.

Stephanie--I haven't bothered to check out phone costs in a few months, so your rates made me look. Rogers is getting the iphone contract, so all the other carriers have changed their plans--radically cheaper for text and phtos. I am off to break my contract and get unlimited. looking forward to telling rogers to go to hell. and to phone bills that make sense. so thanks.

Love those pis :) ... maybe I am the crazy lady, but there are very few material possessions I have that would cause me the sort of violent reaction to their loss ...

SR, sorry to hear about your bike.The low-life will get his/her just desserts and maybe worse- poor them.
Your photos however are beautiful as usual. I get the feeling of spring just starting- bare trees with lush wet grass. What kind of bird is that?

I've always wondered why bicyclists don't simply loosen the rear brakes when they dismount and lock up.

That way if someone chops the lock while they're away, all they have to do is wander around for a block or two and look to see which bus it's under -- along with the thief.

I had a bike once -- it was stolen -- that's rear brakes would pop open if you squoze too hard. Also, while pulling steep hills, it would shift gears automatically. In the wrong direction.

When someone stole that bike I laughed and laughed and laughed. And watched the obituaries for a week or two.

Beautiful series. Last shot is my favourite. Very sorry to hear about your bike.

Many years ago, my bike was stolen. Over 6 months later, I went to the library and decided for no good reason to go in through the children's section entrance. There in the courtyard was my bike. The police dept. was right next door. Had the librarian call the police, one strolled over and we waited for the thief to appear. He was busted and I got my bike back.

I know people who can travel vast distances as spirits. I will talk to them and see what they can do to those who steal bikes from young ladies.

Oh I'm sorry to hear about your bike but these are lovely pictures. I'm sure in Canada the flags grow wild just like the regular maples :)
