missing bike

Yarg! My hand-me-down old mountain bike has gone amiss from my back yard. Tsk Tsk to me for not locking it up. Worth nothing but nostalgia. ’97(?) Trek mountain bike, lots of stickers on it (beer stickers, environmental, farming, skiing), had an unfinished wood basket on the back and an extremely rusty chain. black with teal accents. if you see it, let me know! Thanks, y’all.
