Who Are the People in Your Neighborhood?

This old man rides by my house every day.

The first few times I saw him go by I wondered where he was going on a little girl's bike, but then I noticed he does laps around the block, so it's likely an exercise thing.

Biking in sandals is funny, but it's his helmet that really kills me - and maybe him one day, too. Does he really think a fake plastic Yankees helmet will protect him if he gets in an accident? Perhaps that's why he always rides on the sidewalk, even though there are rarely any vehicles traveling on the street.

I have so many questions for this man, but in the meantime I'll settle for just sneaking peeks at this absurd scene from my window.
