January 31: 2018 The Surrey with the Fringe on Top

Journaling
Peggy (my sister) never made waves nor inconvenienced anyone; she always wanted everybody to be happy. She was a giver, never a taker. At the end of her two week, jam-packed, fun-filled visit to Seattle, we went to Alki beach to enjoy fish and chips and watch the beach scene. She hinted that riding the bicycle surrey could be fun. Oh, yeah, tourist silliness; I ignored her. She mentioned it again, what, she actually wants to do this?! So off we went in the rented surrey with the fringe on top. Picture 3 geriatrics belting out songs from Oklahoma while peddling along the beach. Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry..... It was such a joyful hour. Peggy went home the next day and the day after, she had a massive brain hemorrhage from which she never recovered. We may not have Peggy, except in our hearts, but we will always have the memory of our beautiful ride along Alki Beach in that shiny little surrey with the fringe on top.
