neighborhood report

Seen from my window this morning:

1. A young family out for a walk -- mom pushing double stroller, dad zoom around her on a Razor scooter. If she gets a turn at the scooter while he pushes, three cheers for them. Otherwise, she's got three kids to look out for.

2. A guy on a souped-up road bike, with aerobars and everything, all kitted out in lycra with a fancy helmet and Oakley shades -- stopping in front of our house to smoke a cigarette (pulled out from his underseat bag).
