A Tourist took these pics after I let them try to ride my notorious Cat Bike, The Black Pussy. They did not believe it possible as it is quite awkward and weighs a ton. Bike theft is a big problem here so this design eliminates that possibility as a Sober person finds it a challenge to ride or lift, so shall a Drunkard Thief find it beyond reasonable.
The bike has actually fallen on hard times and gone through several changes since its creation 7 years ago. Tomorrow, pics of it when she was a svelt Chopper Bike ;~j

When they built the new School Gymnasium, they had to remove a GIANT Live Cedar Tree from the site and, to recycle her spirit, they asked local Carpenter/Artist Len Skinner to carve the School Mascot out of a big chunk...
So, having done weld-jobs for Len on several occasions prior (Horse Gates for the Nature Trail etc.), he subcontracted my services to fabricate support braces out of 5/8 inch thick steel plate mounted atop 3 inch diameter galvanized pipe. It had to be sturdy cuz this Dolphin weighed over 300 pounds and despite signs to "Keep Off", we knew Parents would sit their Toddlers on its back for some funny Photo-Ops !

Again, this is ironic and perhaps indicative of how the mind of a child can process what they are told their weaknesses are, and how they can work towards conquering their deficiency if they approach the news with positive energy.
Writing is my foremost passion and there is no point getting out of bed in the morning if I cannot find a way to squeeze it into each day...
That said... Spellcheck had to correct me THREE times in the above two paragraphs. Must have been Phoenician in a previous life, as I prefer to do things phonetically !
