i was walking down the road taking photographs.
kids were playing in the road and as i approached them
a little boy, maybe about four years old excitedly waved to me while offering up
a very warm greeting.
i was touched.
i returned the hello and kept walking.
he ran towards me and exclaimed that he could ride his bike
without training wheels.
i told him that was an excellent job.
he asked if i would like to see.
"sure". so i stopped and waited while he began to show me.
he had a small bit of trouble getting going but once he was on, he had the hang of it.
he was right. he could ride his bike without training wheels.
and i was so proud of him.
