This picture is of my ninth birthday, which was a very significant day for me. Not only did I get a party, but also the present I wanted. I remember, as I blew out the candle, I wished for a new bike, and there it was hiding in the back of the pick-up, a shiny black three-speed. It brought me independence, it was fast. I won many races with that bike.
The part was attended by many neighborhood friends, and my family.
