Thanks to my son who acted so quickly today and set out in the pouring rain on foot to start searching the local woods and footpaths. He said if she was hidden we didn't have much time to get her back. I told him it was long gone in the back of a transit and would be stripped by now but he was determined to try. I'm so glad he did.
When he called me, out of breath, and he said those words "Mum I've got your bike. I've found her" I just could not believe my ears. I ran out in to the rain and set off to meet him walking back pushing Rhonda! He was soaked through and tired from pushing her up hill but a hero for sure!
She needs some repairs as they caused a bit of damage getting the steering lock off and trying ( but failing miserably! ha ha!!) to hot wire her but nothing that cannot be fixed. I'm just so happy to be reunited. You wouldn't believe!! It's been emotional! : 0 )
As my son said today "For every sinner there is a saint" and I am just stunned at how quickly people acted today to spread the word. Love it or loathe it, Facebook is a great tool for spreading the word. The news spread, not just to every corner of the country but to countries all over the world as well! All thanks to people caring enough to act on what they read. People I have never met must have spent a good portion of their morning sharing that status and then going back to update people on the good news. Amazing. I cannot thank them enough. I think balance is well and truly restored and as I sit down this evening with my glass of wine, doing my final wrapping I can smile, safe in the knowledge that next year is going to be OK thanks to the support of family, fellow bikers and friends all over the world who have my back!
No left overs for the dogs this Christmas who have once again proved their worth and slept through the whole bloody episode! Nice once Chui and Josh!!! It's lucky we love you!!
