The day kinda went like this.: Mrs. Hillbilly called to tell me about these giant 12 ft trees at Costco she saw for only $39.99 each. She really wanted some for her backyard BUT her husband wouldn’t let her take the trailer because he was afraid she was going to hit something with it. He said he could do it for her on Friday, but she was sure they were going to sell out so she called me. “Sure,” I said. “We can fit those trees in the back of my car no problem, I’ll meet you there at 10 o’clock.”
She ended up buying 9 trees! Three carloads later and she had her trees.
Then it was her turn to help me with a little something. A few days ago I spied an unwanted rock pile in the neighborhood. I thought, “How cool would it be to have a fire pit in the backyard to roast marshmallows and stuff this summer.” So we pulled out her husband’s “man cart” and went to work. Some of the rocks were a little too heavy to lift so we had to improvise with a hand cart.
Lucky for us there was an “open house” in the neighborhood and the realtor drove by and invited us to come over and get some free sandwiches and something to drink. OH TWIST MY ARM! Can this be true? FREE (liberated) rocks and a free lunch all in one day. You gotta be kidding me. Even I can make small talk long enough to eat a free Panini sandwich and chips!
