Tigers & scary things in Scotland
Dorothy Heard – Fort Worth, TX
The photo – it’s really my first bike! I was about 3 yrs old and this was at my maternal grandmothers house in Glasgow, Scotland, where I was born & grew up. It was an black backle of a tricycle, but I loved to ride it up and down the garden path. Not too far down that path because the house was in the grounds of a foundry where my grandfather was the boss. There were several brick buildings in there that I imagined were full of tigers & other scary things, even though I wasn’t allowed in the gate to the foundry I was sure could come & get me. Anyhow, I didn’t have my own bike so I loved going there & rode that wee big till I was too big! I have a lovely Trek road bike now!
