Even if I am not doing my imitation of Scrooge this year, I am still visited by a ghost from the past, a trikkified past. I am celebrating six months as a blogger, at Trikker Chicks, and thought I’d go back to that newbie first month and just sort of reminisce on some of those introductory posts. And in case you are just starting to know me, well all this is new to you!
During this season of giving, we Trikke enthusiasts have our own charity called “Give a Kid a Trikke” that helps autistic children find joy. It was created by Mark Martin of Trikke Squad and backed by Ken Haines from Stand Up and Ride. Kids who have autism have huge challenges in their lives and some of them have found their smile and laughter, all from carving. For as little as a $15 donation, you can help get one of these deserving kids a Trikke. You can go to Trikke Tech and use Paypal to donate, it is that easy!
Stuck for a gift idea? Why not get that 3CV-fiend friend a new helmet. After all it is good to replace those things every once and a while, and having a few to choose from is like new shoes for a shop-aholic. I did a post on when it is advisable to replace a helmet and under what circumstances it should be replaced. Maybe it’s time for a review?
Another post I found amusing is one I pulled out of the way-back-when-past, back when I was blogging under a different persona. It was written about things I have heard others say as I carved by them, happily on my way. It’s surprising what some people say or even what they are doing when they exclaim, “it’s too hard.” All that means to me is more room on the trail.
At this six month marker I’d like to thank all my readers who have helped me achieve almost 3600 views. I know that’s a lot of re-visitors and hope you will continue to enjoy reading about “it” and doing “it” too… you know that carving thing.
Well Chickklettes, I wish you all a wonderful holiday season. May your paths be free from slippery surfaces and may the wind be at your back, both ways. Tomorrow is probably not the end of the world as we know it, so I’ll see you here next week. Unless those Mayans were correct …
