It Pays to be Nice.

Yesterday I gave a Snowblower to a Friend in Town Who was having problems keeping his Older Craftsman Alive. Today He Calls Me and informs Me of a Freebie on the Side of the Road. Picked it up, and it Started First Pull, and Everything Works! It's Been a Good Week!

I love it when that happens! I gave a mower to my spanish teacher (single mom, struggling with muscle disease). I then was given a battery mower, and I wound up having my most successful year ever.

it's weird....the more i give away the more i get. people hear that i fix some to give away and they bring me stuff to repair. some people have even given me their old blowers when they upgrade . some just give me stuff.

last year i got 5-6 mowers , two wood chippers , a chainsaw, a pressure washer , and at least half a dozen blowers. sold some , gave some away , and kept some for parts.

karma at work. what goes around comes around. it feels like i have picked up and flipped more mower/snowblowers over the last year than i have previous years. i give some away or sell others reasonably priced. heck i even got my aunt a lawn tractor for her rescue for free along with giving her the snowblower that i was going to build for myself for the rescue. karma always seems to balance things out.
