Bills, Bills, Bills, Bleh...

I crave the day when I can be debt-free,
and that it lasts, wouldn't that be wonderful?
If I can, I'll post it here with updates...

Honorable Honor Boxes

There was a $10 bill in one Honor box.
Not sure what to make of this yet...

Just FYI that the quarters from this route go to me 1st.
That is because quarters cannot go directly from the machines to Paypal.
Since donations to both the Humane Society and to the Wildlife Waystation
are on auto-pay, the quarters go to me 1st.

Busy, busy, busy...

So this route is arguably a golden goose, okay, maybe a brass goose.
It drops coins every once and awhile with no overhead.
I don't really spend a lot of time with it.
Since there are comparatively so few machines, I can visit the route one day
each week, and get thru it within 4-6 weeks, every machine visited.

It takes up one morning every week, and I work in the area the rest
of the day.
It makes about $100 a month.
 I could sell the route for $1000.
It would take a year for this route to produce $1000.
The 2nd year would produce nothing because it would be sold.

I'll stay on the road and should I find work that pays more than my
route, only then can I afford to sell it.
In the meantime, it remains for sale on eBay for $6,500.00.

Selling Route, Not Selling Route

I have the main arm of my vending route up for sale on eBay,
check it out.
I kinda don't want to sell it, but I don't need it as much anymore.
It's slow profit, which I state in the auction ad.
Except that it is a beautiful route..!

Every machine is placed, brand new or like-new,
serviced and in tippy-tops shape!
The only reason the income is slow (Not non-existant,
just slow-going) is because I'm not a sales person at all.
A good sales-person could really sell this product.
You don't think it would make a difference, it does,
it's just not one of my particular skills at all.

Have an awesome St. Patrick's Day weekend..!
Stay safe, drive responsibly, support candy/gumball
machines and have fun!

Benihana's blue roof

With all the time on the road delivering, servicing, buckling/unbuckling seatbelts,
I got really sentimental when I drove over a hill and saw a bright blue tiled roof of
a Benihana's restaurant.
With all the work-at-homes and food deliveries, I wonder what people do on dates
these days?
Do they still go out to eat and to the movies?
I reminisced about visiting restaurants that had pools, ponds and waterfalls,
even wandering minstrels.
The lit ponds and showgirls can still be found in Vegas,
and the wandering musicians can be found around, too.
After a quick visit to the past, I returned to the road to reminisce later...

Life on the Road

I started out servicing my bulk vending machines in all their wonderful locations.
Then I naturally fell into delivery to a bunch of wonderful locations.
Definitely a service industry which is fine with me.
