Like most inner city blokes,I dream of a shed where I can bang away at nails,disassemble old bikes,fiddle with the mower and generally tool around.In the meantime I'll have to make do with a Gorilla bench and dog kennel on the back porch.
Having spent most of my working life at sea, as a sailor in the merchant marine,I now work ashore as a land lubber. My job as a cargo super involves a company car and a small amount of driving around, which I try to keep to a minimum.
I've always loved that old Yiddish expression' to schlepp' . I seem to spend half of my life schlepping stuff from point A to point B on a bike, so this is my view of the world from the saddle.
