Today as I was driving down the road I realized we really need to show more love for the invention of the wheel. Where would we be without it? The early ages it was so helpful to move tons of boulders for building. Time progresses and we are thankful for garbage cans to roll our cans to the curb for pick up, food shopping to purchase all things we would not be able to carry alone.
When we have children, it starts with strollers, hand pushed carts, tricycles, bicycles, scooters, skateboards oh my! Then we want to drive! The choices, motorcycles, cars, airplanes (they have wheels and wings!), jobs with front loaders, 18 wheelers, tanks and many many other options. There is a time we are thankful to escape our craziness of buzzing around as fast as we can and we go back to the enjoyment of cycling, for exercise or escape.
Then we age, we need walkers with wheels, wheel chairs, commodes on wheels, beds on wheels and sadly enough the wheels that are placed under our coffins to our final rest.
So today or this week or in the near future wherever you might find yourself with a drink in hand, I’m certain at some point wheels helped you get there raise your glass and say CHEERS to the inventor of the wheel!
*Remember don’t drink and drive your wheels*
