Saving up , is a process that requires a lot of patience ,,
Ok then , knowing that a saved dime , sitting collecting dust ,
reaps only ten cents in dust after a time .
Invest that dime in something that brings you 20 dimes in a short time
and you have my formula for amassing dimes to share with others .
Best way to spend a profit
is making happiness for a bunch of really happy people
who deserve to be happy .
where's the point ?
Point is , Karen and I made a friend whom , when we met her ,
was mega not happy .
Two days later ,,,
Magic of Karen , had this new friend smiling inside out
with enough smile left over ,,,
to cleanse the debris of a thousand sad tears away from the cheeks
of a Hippo .
All that cash I had made and saved flipping cars , and boats , was
now the lube to make another persons life slide along
on easy street without friction .
Silver and Gold are heavy
they come with heavy karma
set them free of you as soon as you can .
In doing that
the exchange for me was by far more precious then the heavy
weight of hoarding .
On the Radio was CSN's " Almost Cut my Hair "
on our minds was how to keep close to fun , without over taxing
the money bag .
I saw it that morning out on the street .
a For sale sign
Walking down i got the ph.# off the sign
came back up and called ,,,
" Sure , I can come there now , you want to drive it? it won't
start, that's why i am selling so cheap "
" No need , come on down , I have cash and am ready to buy it ,
if I like it "
1971 Chevy Pick-up for $350 , not running
Oh yeah , ain't runnin' right yet that is
He comes down
I popped the distributor cap off and see the points are burnt out .
he's not super mechanical like me
" Here's $300 cash , swap this for the pick-up ,,, deal ? "
he grabs the cash, hands me a bill of sale and title with keys
to the pick-up .
a run to the parts store
spend $35 more dollars for : points, plugs , condenser , Rotor
and distributor cap .
One hour later I have the Pick-up burning Rubber down the street .
" Tammy , I have $350 in that truck , I can get $1,350 easy for it ,
in a day , how about a thousand dollar paycheck for one day ? "
" Rog' , you want me to sell it for you and you pay me ? "
" No , I'll sell it using your Phone , and split the profit with you ,
$500 help you ? "
" Oh no , you can't do th,,,,
" Tammy, drive my vehicle down behind me , we'll leave the truck
on the Blvd , with a sign on it ,,, come back and wait, it will sell quick "
and it sold for $1,400 to a Mexican Guy who said he'd get $5,000
for it across the Border .
Tammy would not take the $525 I tried to give her ,
So I stuffed it in her Cassette player where she'd find it .
I'd call when me and Karen got home
and ask her if I left a tape in her deck
good ideas always come when you have good plans .
