When I saw the prompt for this week (above), I immediately thought of Laurel and Hardy. Surely, there must be some fun photos of them with bikes. Here’s what I found.
To see them in action, I’m sharing this clip with them evading someone who’s on to whatever trouble they’ve created. The duo commandeer a donkey costume and hop on a bicycle. Now that’s old time comedy.
I’m thrilled that libraries is the theme for Sepia Saturday this week. I’ll probably post again tomorrow, but here is a start.

Melvil Dewey (left) the originator of the Dewey decimal system had his share of critics int the world of libraries. Not only was he known for designing a famous system to organize libraries, he was known to be a serial harasser. Shame, Mr. Dui, shame.
(Dewey was a proponent of phonetical spelling and preferred his name was spelled “Dui.”
