    I attended a Bela Fleck & theFlectones show last Sunday, & picked up
    an eyecatcher for drivers. A bright (!) red six inch tall stuffed
    Hippo plush now rides atop my seat bag facing back towards the
    traffic. Sorry I don't have a picture of mine on my bike, but here's a
    look at the Hippo:

    I had a couple days bout with the flu and today was my first time out with it. I rode through the
    credit union drive up teller window & as I was leaving the teller asked over the intercom 'Is that a
    Bela Fleck hippo?'.

    It's in the mid-twenties today so I was wearing a hunter's cammo face mask/headsock in the drive-
    through. I think my Tour Easy is ID enough for me at this particular branch.
