Town and Country

My grandmothers tri-wheeler has stood the test of time and two 10 yr old boys. Now it pulls duty in the warehouse at my shop. The ol' town and country started to buckle under the stress of us 20 years ago. We would get it out during the holiday visits and make it "peel out". Essentially we would get it up on two wheels pedal really fast to get the wheel up in the air spinning insanely fast and then slam it back down to the pavement.

When it was given to me a few years back I was able to shine it up and true the rear wheels. It even came to me with a little note in the basket which read:


I wonder what grandmother was baking the day she took it to the grocery store?
