Usually it sneaks up on me.
So, how can I make my bicycle express “Lincoln’s Legacy?” (the theme for this year)
I took half a sign language course once, and learned that the sign for Lincoln… based on the letter “L” up on the head like his hat. Out at a bar in West Virginia we melded that with the “I love you” sign to make “Lincoln Loves You.” Hey, no matter how bad a day you’re having, Lincoln Loves You. (I told my sixth grade class about that… and ‘way later in the year I was having a bad day and Lisa Gagne said it to me. Some little gestures linger fondly in the memory ;))
Let’s see… could I do up the back end like unto a log cabin?
