No free lunch
My dad had his sayings he would tell us over and over. The one that stuck in my mind today was "there is no free lunch" I went over to a neighbors house today to dig up some plants from her yard. They where FREE I got great variety good starters and then I started talking to her about how I should transplant them. Guess what? A trip to buy compose for the little darlings new beds. As I was planting I reflected on my "free sink and faucet" but what really got a sigh was my "Free Hot Tub" I got a few years back. I had a customer who wanted to get rid of her hot tub she thought my kids would love it so I said yes. I had to hire a company to move it ($300.00) then I had to hire an electrician to put an electrical box out side ($800.00) I had it one season and the pump went out ($300.) So much for free as my dad in his wisdom always said "there is no free lunch".
