Berry on a Bike!

Berry on a Bike!

Dear Berry, The other day I was riding my new expensive hybrid. I say "expensive" because you would think I would want to be extra special careful with it and it would be a priority over my BlackBerry - well I do want to take extra special care of it. I love it! So I figured out a way to find a front pouch that sits on my handle bars and I can just put my BlackBerry in it. I thought what a...
