I drove past this cute little ranch bungalow to see a young couple who had just moved in take this piece to the curb. I pulled over and watched them...she stood in front of it with her hand on her hip after setting it down and I could tell she was pondering her decision to toss it out. "Walk away!" I kept thinking. And they did! And I snagged it! She looked out the bay window at me stuffing it into my vehicle and I could tell she was kicking herself! Sorry gf, his piece now belongs to the Queen of Revival!
