Petro? No problem!!


If I had had more nerve I would have knocked on the door of the house to ask about this interesting conveyance. I can't imagine riding this contraption in our cold weather, but there it was---parked at the curb. I'd love to meet the owner, wouldn't you!!

Today in Minnesota History: 1928- A car bomb kills "Dapper Dan" Hogan, owner of St. Paul's notorious Green Lantern speakeasy and longtime boss of the city's underworld. AND. ..Many moons ago, Jim, the husband of Kate, the photoblogger, was born in St. Joseph's Hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota. (Reference: MNHS:ORG)

  6. Happy Birthday to Jim . . . and many more. Perhaps, Kate, he would like to have a dressed up bike like that??? I hope you both celebrate this day with great pleasure.

  8. You said: "I'd love to meet the owner, wouldn't you!!"
    Well, I'd love to meet the owner too, but I think I would avoid any sort of political conversation...

  10. This would be a provocative photo for creative writers to write a short story about the person who owns this bike.

  12. I can't imagine going very far in this weather...but how fun in warmer weather. It brought a smile to my face. I'm betting the owner is a Senior in our society.

  13. I agree with all your comments about patriotism and I had to laugh at Donald's comment (aphotoaday) about political discussion.

    Because it is a tricycle, I tend to believe that it is a senior citizen or perhaps a mentally disabled person who owns and rides it, which is the reason I didn't try to nose around the property to get more information. Whoever owns it must have a great time in the summer with the fan! But not now!!

  15. Hi Kate,
    First, happy birthday to your husband and all the best.
    Also, thanks a lot for stopping by on our blog and for your nice and interesting comments. We have been very busy these past weeks and didn't answer unfortunately, but we really miss it.
    This tricycle is quite funny, and I'm sure doesn't go unnoticed, though, I agree with zsolt72 and Kris quite patriot (or cocorico as we say in French)... Look like 4th of July! LOL "aphotoaday" I agree...
    Enjoy your birthday party!

  18. Happy belated to Jim. I did not know Minnesota had such a colorful history, though I hear it's the Chicago gang and Flour Mill money that built the great homes around the lakes in Minneapolis.
