A Hard Day’s Work

Gabe wanted to make some money.  Without doing extra chores, of course.

He decided to sell something.  What does he have, though, that other people might be willing to buy?  He decided on his silly bands.

Only problem was, this is 2012, not 2010

Colin tried to help out by making a sign for his bike and driving it around.  The four neighborhood kids who saw it didn’t bite. Or  maybe they couldn’t read it as he whizzed past?

Either way, it was a bit of a bust.  His only customers were Carina (whose piggy bank was filled by Gabe when she was a baby, so I think that is pretty fair) and Dad.

The story does have a happy ending though.  They tried lemonade next and made a few bucks. As they were wrapping that venture up I went out there and saw a huge black speck in the ice.  Nice.

  Shhhh, don’t tell the suckers down the street.  We don’t want to them ask for their fiddy cents back.

Haha, I love it! Rae is pretty sure she is going to make a ton of money doing dog-walking in our new neighborhood. Right now she is saving up so she can go to Chuck E.Cheese - what a great use of money huh?
