Pinching Pennies

In the newly present sentiment of “I’m going broke…I’m going under!”; dad has come up with a few brilliant ideas.

He is going to sell his car and buy a bike. Let that one sink in a minute. A seventy year old man riding his Schwinn through the snowy Colorado streets.

He’s going to cancel Mr. Lee’s Lawn Service to save the $20 a week for grass cutting. He will then sell his snow blower and buy a riding lawn mower to cut his own grass. Never mind the fact that his yard may not be large enough for a riding lawn mower to turn around in…and the steep hill in the back yard may pose a hazard. Then there’s the issue with shoveling snow…maybe he’ll pay someone to shovel.
