Cruisin' on my Bluebird

I started a thread asking what my 1st bike is.
We figured it to be Murray built Sears 20" wheel sidewalk bike.
CABEr @Balloontyre sent me this one for Christmas! WOW! Thank You Ivo.

Another childhood experience for me, was throwing the free news paper, two times per week, to 150 houses in the tract where we lived;
Huntington Beach, Independent.
40+ years later, I love old bikes again, "new collector" get a text from my buddy Jim, asking if I want to buy this old bike?
April 1st, 2015. "April fools" is what I'm thinking.

So, maybe a year later, my friend Marty @cyclingday brings the Baltimore Sun carrier bag out to the @cyclonecoaster.com free swap-meet,
as usual for him, he gives me the bicycle-brother, deal-of-a-life-time price of $20 :D

So, lately, I realize the greatness of these "Gifts", and I rode the 1940 Western Flyer, Heavy Duty, with the bag flying up front, "Light For All"
Up and down the beach bike path, all day long; honking my Goose horn, smiling as big as a 10-year-old boy, saying, "Merry Christmas! Peace on Earth! Light For All!"
