DSC_3680www.francescycles.com My lovely and dear friend Josh Muir recently participated in the Portland Manifest Bicycle show here in Portland. I would have voted his gorgeous and thoughtful "Frances Tourist" into the top twelve. Especially after it and he rode like maniacs in the 80 mile bike race- each of them crossing the finish line in one piece. I think he had a good time up here-he and Josh Thayer drank many free beers and made new friends. "Hey Bike People!"

I felt sad the night they left. They made my own home feel more like home. Goodbye for now little Soupy, my love.
