Miss Ellen Becomes Even More Useful

The addition of a (legally-purchased) dairy crate gives her sass, style, and Back.

Nice! Miss Ellen's got back!!

Dear Gia,
LOL! That's what I thought. I sang it to her so she wouldn't feel like a Beast of Burden.

Muah!

Love Miss Ellen!

A fine addition to a fine machine!

In about three years or so, when I am off duty from my job working the gas island at Costco, I would like to bungee strap a similar milk crate on my Honda Trail 90.

I will use it to pick up aluminum cans along the side of the highway up in the Sierra Nevada.

Nothing shouts class like a strapped on milk crate.

I'm just sayin'

Dear Momma Fargo,
Miss Ellen Thanks You from the bottom of her Rims to the top of her Basket.

She's preening, in fact.
LOL

Dear Captain,
Blahahahahaha! I know. We classy people go our Own Road.

Occasionally we stop to take a photograph (ART) or pick up litter (BEAUTIFICATION).

Here's to many high-brow excursions!

I love the basket - but I really want the car BEHIND Miss Ellen. Heh.

the observer said...

Ann T:
The car behind Miss Ellen is my favorite color, royal blue. Red is next. A great picture of your bike! Contrasts and all...

Many more miles of happy biking to you and Miss Ellen!

@The Bug: That's a Honda Pilot, a small SUV.

Ann T. said...

Dear The Bug,
Today, with high humidity, heat in the 90's, and places to turn up and be composed--

I could not agree with you more.

But I'm still happy w/ my girl here,
Ann T.

Dear The Observer,
Thanks for the good wishes! I am with you on the red and blue, although generally I like them all . . . orange perhaps the least.

Miss Ellen is stylin now! I still have about 4 milk crates (obtained ILLEGALLY) from when I used to live in Jersey. They are fabulous and have come in so handy!
I didnt know you could buy them. =/

Have fun riding and carting stuff now!!

the observer said...

Ann T and all:
Wrong car!

That's a Honda ELEMENT not a Pilot. I've made that mistake before...

Ann T. said...

Dear peedee,
They are darn handy! Ummm, I 'borrowed' some about a century ago, but returned them four years later. I hope the American Dairy Association forgives me! Container Store, $10.

Have a great day,
Ann

Dear T.O.
Well, I'm Astounded. Glad you cleared that up!!

Ann:
If there is one thing Miss Ellen might "want", it's perhaps a tasteful bow somewhere on her "basket".
(or a Yosemite Sam sign on the tail saying "BACK OFF"...LOL!

Girl's got CLASS...gotta hand it you !

Keep on biking, you two!

Ann T. said...

Dear Bob,
I didn't think of Yosemite Sam, LOL! I did think about reflectors though.

A bow would be fun. Hmmm, maybe a yellow ribbon for all the troops out there.
