Just needed to post this. Makela apparently has some hidden talents in the arts and crafts department. The other day I stopped by The Bike Shop and noticed a little tricycle made out of copper wire.
Wow! Where did that come from?
So, that night while I was over at Mac’s house I asked him about it and found out that they really aren’t that difficult to make. Then last night, Mac decided to steal some wire from his lab and proceeded to make one and a half. I ended up finishing the second one and Mac gave me some wire so I could try and make my own.
Today, I attempted to make my own. I decided to make a big tricycle, but ended up with a gangly construction. It’s not really that bad, but it really does seem more appropriate for those “special” kids that are much more young at heart than young in the flesh. Anyway, I’m not going to post a picture of that one… it shames me.
Just got back from the XC trails. Time to clean up and see what people are up to.
