My wife is part of a neighborhood buy-nothing group, where people advertise the stuff they don't want and then give it free to those who want it. Today was the group's "garage sale," where people put all their stuff out in the driveway and folks can come take it for free. Sadly, we still have a lot of stuff left over.
Anyway, I was out doing some yard work when a mom came up with two boys, probably about 2nd and 4th grade. They were looking at the books when I overheard one of the boys say, "I really want a bike." Well, inside my garage I had my boys' old 24" bikes. I say old, but I bought them for Christmas a few years ago and my boys rode them maybe 10 times. They've been sitting in the garage for years unused. And they're really nice bikes, too. I had them assembled professionally, and upgraded the gear shifters to paddle shifters (or whatever you call them).
So I pulled them both out and said, "All I ever wanted was for somebody to ride these bikes. And if you'll ride them, they're yours." The mom said they had just moved to Austin from California ("Yeah, we're one of those," she said), and that they had to sell their boys' bikes when they left. So it was a win for everybody. I've got the bikes out of my garage, and they went to young boys who will ride them.
Made me happy.
