why not earlier in the day

Just saw a CL add for 2 older garage kept schwinns for $10 posted at 8pm.

Know Schwinns aren't something a lot of people get excited about, though would have gone and picked them up just to clean them up and (assuming they were my/the wife's size) ridden for a while untill giving them to freinds or selling them. Would have beat hitting the stationary bike at the gym during the rain storms.

I'll give at least $20 for any Chicago Schwinn and maybe even a Japanese one, too.
On the other hand, I bet they will make their new owner just as happy as they would have made me, so I'll wait for the next one.
I have spoken.
