You know there have been many times I helped People and the good times and feelings have out numbered the mistakes Ive committed and the thanks and returns are worth taking the chance! You , I and most of the guys on here every day probably feel the same way or we wouldn't be wasting our time wearing down our typewriter keys!!!

Yep I have found that the less you think about the bad things the more they go away. The less effect they have on your life, I spend a lot more time looking up a the beautiful clouds leaving less time for the funky to be remembered.

No truer words have ever been spoken.
I need to get my 86 yr old father to stop watching news channels for many hrs a day and have him look at the clouds again.

With your luck, I dont want to be anywhere near you, maybe keep a state or 2 between us

I had a 65 Chevelle SS for sale back in 73. I had stripped the parts off it I needed to use on my 64 and was selling it for $25. Yes it was still a driver. A couple came to my door and asked about the car, she did the talking. Wanted to know if they could have the car now and come pay in 2 weeks when he got his first check from his new job,(reason they needed a 2nd car). I went along with the deal, signed the title over 2 them and said see you in 2 weeks . I was just glad to get the thing gone, had no where to park it at the 4 plex we were renting. 2 weeks pass and they knock on the door, smiles on their faces and he hands me the $25 bucks and says thank you, you don't know how much this meant to us.

I sold a mini mini van to a young couple with 3 kids, they were all crammed in a VW bug when they came to see the Dodge Colt Vista Van I had for sale. I was asking $1350 for it,( paid $400 for it, fixed the bad diaphragm on the carb and cleaned the interior up real nice.)
They looked it over, set the kids car seats in it to make sure they fit, did a test drive. Said they really would like to buy it and could give me $975 down and make $100 a month payments for the balance. I said ok. Signed the title over to them, they handed me their money. I handed her back a hundred dollars and told her, you don't have any payments, its all yours. They both cried. Young family trying to make it, no way I could take all their cash on hand or payments. I still made decent money, and their kids still got to have new shoes.

That is so cool, yep, the feeling of helping someone like that lasts a lot longer than the money would.
