|Christmas splurge at MEC|
|I had fun with my nephew!|
I splurged on some bike related stuff at MEC and I also bought a bell at a bike shop on Vancouver Island that will go on. It's a World cup Soccer bell that will go on Baxter. I perhaps will find him an animal bell this Summer. I also got him the blue USB chargeable front light. I also bought a couple more Turtle Front lights so I don't have to keep moving the other pair between bikes. MEC sells the batteries for them for cheap, at .50 cents a pop, so cheap to replace the batteries in the budget Turtle lights. I bought a few more expensive ones for my Planet Bike blinky strap. I also finally bought the Filzer Mini-Zee pump which has a gauge on it.
|Out with the old and in with the new!|
|Zipper is separating.|
I have used a blue Velo Backpack designed for cyclists. I've had it 5 years and the zipper is going on it. Unfortunally, it's not covered by Warranty. (the zipper flaw is mentioned many times in the reviews) Fortunally, I got another one on sale for cheap. If MEC has a sale on an item, it's not a sale. It means that they've discontinued the item. Oh well, I hope I get more then 5 years out of my new Red one!. I do plan to keep on using the blue one for as long as I can though.
While I was gone, I got a few postcards:

I've made up a nice Postcrossing kit, and while in Vancouver I stocked up on postcards. My Sister-in-law got me some stamps for Christmas.

Here's to an exciting 2012!
