He e-mailed me last night about my Craigslist posting offering some gently used pet items for sale. We met up today so his grandson could examine the two 10-gallon aquarium tanks in my listing. After a very long examination of them for chips and asking why I wanted to sell them (they were sitting unused for months and were recently displaced by a large birdcage Vogon bought), we agreed on a sale price of $15 for the pair.
Sadly, he did not volunteer to tell me the news from Lake Wobegon. Oh well. (:
