Ruth Slovenski is my hero.
She rides a blue 1943 Huffy bicycle with a basket to get around. The cool thing -- Ruth is older than the bike: she's 83 years old.
She got the bicycle as a gift from her parents when she was a teenager in 1943. It's the only bicycle she's ever needed or wanted. When she was out for a coffee run last weekend, somebody stole the bike.
A happy ending: When they heard about the theft, several people offered reward money for the bike's recovery. Somebody who claims he received the bike saw Ruth's story and turned her bike in to the police.
See photos of Ruth as a 15 year old girl and today with the same Huffy bike.
Wend Magazine blogged about this too.
