BTW, I enjoy it when we get the occasional compliment about shopping by
bike. For example, last week someone said to my wife and me "You rode
your bikes to Target!! I love it! That is SO COOL!"


I get depressed when people gush in awe because I'd come ALL THE WAY
FROM WINONA LAKE -- almost two miles.

Of late they've started saying "bless you, keep it up." That's
depressing too.


Not nearly as depressing as someone looking at me and asking, "How can someone your age ride a bike?"


I don't know whether Thais are just more polite but when the ask me my
age they exclaim "whooo, so strong". Which true or not is a boost to
the ego :-)

I once got my picture in the paper for having two bags of groceries on
my bike.


Well obviously! One would ruin the balance.
