Yes it does yay.gif

Hey I took a bunch of pics, but need to check through them and upload. Meanwhile, check out an old thread with flower pics. It's from june 23 2013 and it was apparently a warmer summer as it's not blooming quite as much yet as then:

You had a Schwinn Krate ,, and you claim you weren't a Spoiled Child ?

BS .

Those things are now worth more than the Truck I drive .

There's a Whole Community of Collectors for those old Krate Bikes .

sheesh ,,, and I thought I was cool because I was the only Teenager that drove a Mercedes Benz
in my Neighborhood .

( well , it was older , and only cost me $100 , BUT STILL !!!! it was a Benz )

Don't you dare buy a Bike without consulting me , I'm the Bike Wazoo .
DO NOT BUY DEPARTMENT STORE BIKES , THOSE CHEAP BOOGERS WILL KILL YA !
the Brakes fail on them .

ok , how to get bikes dirt cheap

Craigslist garage sale adds .

newspaper garage sale adds .

and it sounds odd ,,, but in some towns , you can call the Transit and ask if they have
any Bikes that people left behind at the Bus stops or front of Buses ,,, cause a lot of people do .

and Transit will sell them to you for very cheap
in Oregon , Policy is , if you have very little Money , they'll give you a Bike .
