Motorcycles and memories

Motorcycles and memories
 
I really like this story about a daughter giving her 84-year-old mother a memory for her birthday.  "What we’re giving today is a memory," said Carol Brown. "She’s not going to get rid of it in a garage sale, break it or throw it away. Memories are the best gifts, I think."
 
in the text of the story…

But one memory has stuck with her: riding on the back of a boy’s motorcycle in the 1930s.

"I wasn’t scared at all," Pearce remembers.

It was exciting, possibly one of the most thrilling moments of her life. Pearce remembered sliding off the bike and the pain of scraping her leg, but loving it just the same. She told this story so many times that Brown can recite it by heart.
