Goodbye Angie. Hello Sweet Caroline!

Sunday, August 21, 2011

Bob and I have been riding our new (free!!!) bicycles around the neighborhood a lot since we picked them up Saturday morning. Oh, how I missed riding a bike! So I have to say goodbye to my SUV, Angie. But I'm excited about commuting on my bike and saving about $160 per month :-D
Oh, and I think I'll call my bike Caroline because when I ride her I keep humming "Sweet Caroline" by Neil Diamond. Hah!

    Dear Melissa and Bob,

    I wanted to Thank you both for dedicating one of your videos to me in the past. I always enjoy watching your videos, although I must admit that I haven't had much time lately to do that.

    I think that is SOOOOooooooooo cool that you got yourself some bikes, and FREE at that! Nice! I love the 'Sweet Caroline' part and the yellow 'glow-in-the-dark' pedals that are on Bob's bike. Your videos are really entertaining! I love the elements that you add: 1) Excellent voice quality, especially considering that you are outdoors!, 2) Fun element!...Bob passing by on the bicycle and blowing a kiss to you! :-) 3) Reality aspect (giving up Angie, but saving $ 160/month), 4) Enthusiasm from both of you! 5) Likability factor...Both of you are really easy to like!...Have you ever thought about contacting a show to get your own exercise segment? Seriously! What I enjoy is that you have fun doing whatever it is that you are doing.

    I checked out your website (www.uphilldreams.com)...Very nice and easy to maneuver around. I saw the bracelets, beautifully done. Do you make necklaces, too?

    OK, well keep having fun...and making those videos. I always feel good after watching your videos! Thank you!

    P.S. - CONGRATULATIONS on your 10-pound loss!

    Keep Sparkin'!

    Happy cycling!

    Padded seats are pretty good and Walmart carries them out here.
