Bicycle all year



You sit in mid-air, wind through your hair;

Feel the speed of downhill whooshes

There are moments of dare

Like times you don't really care

Just the aromas ohmygodyes of flowering bushes.

 Delightful Virtual Cafe WIM Guests how are you on this warm 5th of July? Where was Spring? Summer came-in overwhelming. The limerick is still from Springtime. What can I do for you? How can I help?

 We came here as you know for good food, for plates that were great in design, imports that no-one else has, ringing uo big bills.. when we were sixteen or eigteen. Would you care to see our Winter heating bills, now we are forty five?

 What do they amount to? Anyone here with statements in your shiny attache cases? Great Sean has figures. It's already added up. Comes to 700 per month avarage in Winter and 200 average in summer. So you look for, let's see...5400 Cdn, right?

 I happen to be on my way to my accountant. There are plenty of other companies in this shiny suitcase, Wim. There seem to be companies that can take care of most of my debt.

Sure, but those companies like to be paid too and your accountant or possibly lawyers'fees? If it runs in the millions I would get their advice but I have a way to solve all this my friend and great Guest. Guest.

Are you serious?


How can I without anyone giving advice get from under a debtload like this? You mean I do NOT need an accoutant, a lawyer, or debts-solving company..? ALL BY MYSELF, for Pete's sake, I am really curious, Wim.

Do you remember what Pierre Elliot Trudeau did when he was travelling through te desser? Inspecting an old ruin, he looked over his shoulder and saw bearded wildmen coming at him. Three guys, so he was out-numbered. He jumped up and down, making fast, crazy gestures.

So, you see, Wim you are not serious. What does this have to do with....

They left, my friend. He saved his life. So will you. Your debt collectors will be hanging from their office window and wonder who is that mad bicyclist we see every day in this downtown traffic?

Where are you getting with this, seriously?

You on a bicycle. Who drives a bicycle to work most days of the year? Answer: people who discovered the bicycle as a an enjoyable way to move about and surprise.. no heating-bill of about,,,how much did you say?, 5400 Cdn.

To pay the heating??

Yes to pay the heating by not driving your car and throw-in less global heating and throw-in pure, pure super fresh air along the river path for your own good health. The car bill and the heating are about the same.

What about the other bills ?

As long as you stay on your bike, they too will disappear like snow in to-days, July 5 2016''heat.

Suppose all bills are paid?

Nice going. You buy a wonderful car, with real leather interior and take the Family out for rides in the country on the weekends. While you're at it: no smoking, no drinking, no tv. When you add that up, your expensive suit will look good on the healthy body of a debtfree man. That economy is BIG fun.

No television?

Peace. Thanks for your coming-by Virtual Cafe WIM almost as good as the Sussix Drive club.

Those were the the good=old days, Wim and we'll pop an e- paragraph: how do you get on a bicycle at 47?

Google, Type-in: Learn how to drive a bike.

See you'all soon, folks.

Hello. I too would love a copy of the book. I spent many a happy afternoon and evening at Wim in my teens. It was a home away from home.
