Tiny Tale (10)

Bicycle Bell

Found this as a prompt on Virginia’s site (click here to read her blog) and I had to write this tale.

Bicycle Bell

“His letter has arrived!”

Many years ago the bicycle bell would have meant this.

*****

Have you ever waited for letters from someone? Have you ever waited for the postman to deliver it to you?

  1. A tiny tale that takes us down memory lane 🙂 As a kid, the bicycle bell meant the ice-cream man was just around the corner – and it if was a hot afternoon in Malaysia, my mum would flag it down and get ice-cream for me and my brother 😀 A long time ago I had friends whom I sent letters to, and each time I had to wait about a week or two before the letters arrived. How times have changed.

    1. That sounds so wonderful!!! Ice cream is definitely one of man’s best inventions… Fire, wheel and ice cream – what would the world do without those 😉
      So glad the tale evoked memories…
      Lots of love to you!

  2. Certainly I would wait at the door step itself for my dad’s letters. I was overjoyed to receive his letters and read the content twice or thrice and feel as if I talk to him personally. It was way back in 1990 when I got married and there was no land line phone even, forget about the internet, mobile phones etc. Now, there is no cycle bells ringing……
