Grandma: For anyone who doesn’t already know, I’m the intrepid Bike Friday that Ruth rides on for our Caminos. I’m dictating to her because my lack of fingers makes typing very difficult. Ruth doesn’t feel like writing much today, but fortunately I’m here to save the day! Tadaa!!!

We are now traveling with our pilgrim friend Doris from Germany. We met her on the Via de La Plata two years ago.  I like her. She’s never made comments about my age and seems to genuinely respect two wheel pilgrims. I did carry beer for her once in Spain, so that might have helped.  She travels everywhere with a frog, maybe she does this because she doesn’t have a bicycle, I’m not really sure. I would ask her but I’m still a bit shy about talking to people. The frog is kind of cute in a “no tires” kind of way. It’s been great having her back with us. How many young people are willing to hang out for a week with a vintage bicycle and a pair of older eccentrics?  Ruth didn’t want me to call them that, but this isn’t her blog, is it?
