Editor’s Note: In April, 1990, after musical chairs and Pat Bowe’s 5th birthday cake, Emily and Kevin Casey joined Pat Bowe’s neighbors in an open class race in the cul-du-sac. There were bicycles, bicycles with training wheels, four-wheelers, tricycles, scooters and tractors with wagons. All were obviously being piloted by unlicensed riders. Pat clearly was pleased with his mastery of his new bicycle, cum training wheels. Everone got off to a good start in the big race, but it wasn’t long before the riders ceased going around the circle clockwise and adopted an every which way approach to their locomotion.
