Local lad Ed, is a familiar sight around these parts. We often see him ‘of an evenin’, sometimes on his bike, sometimes on his skateboard, sometimes on foot. He tends to nip to the mini market, 3 doors up from here, around 6 o clock in the evening. I wouldn’t know what he buys, and it’s not for me to say really, but I often hear the sounds of clinking bottles as he passes by.
Ed, is a very keen cyclist, I have seen him with quite a few different bikes, and when he wonders past in the evening (clinking), he can’t help but push his nose up against the window and admire the steel angels descending from the ceiling.
Sometimes he comes in and has a chat, and a beer.
Last week he came in for a chat, and talk turned to the Olmo Superlight.He had it bad, he wanted her.
Ed, through caution to the wind, and took her home.
We haven’t seen Ed since he got the Olmo, and I don’t like asking at the minimarket, but they did say they hadn’t seen much of him either.
It goes to show really, doesn’t it, what the right frame can do for a person.
