2013’s view from the deck………

David loves the toilet roll analogy about time passing, you know – the nearer you get to the end of the roll, the quicker it seems to unwind. Cheerful little soul that he may be, I will give him the fact that the years don’t seem to last quite as long as I remember them doing in my youth!
As viewed from our deck, 2013 certainly seemed to move pretty fast…….
January saw the hardier amongst us already doing happy hour out there!

About girlonahandcycle

Natural Brit/Naturalized American wife, mom, grandma and all around old broad still happily ignoring my MS (since 1985 - ha!). Every time it slows me down I find a way to speed back up which explains my very cool Tilite wheelchair and Top End handcycle ..........also my ripped arms ; ) Don't get back to the homeland or to other cool places quite as easily or often as I'd like anymore so theoretically my rambling here keeps me a little more connected to far away friends and family.
