Thank you for your hard work on this site. Your family is beautiful.
Cyn, you crack me up.
I was reading...blah....blah...blah....HE TRIED TO SELL DIRT! Too cute - I can just see you as a little tike, Rob, talking up the benefits of the crumbly black stuff!
Great interview. lovely family.
Thanks for sharing.
Nice interview! I love learning new things about people, especially after knowing them so long through just posts!
Thank you Rob for making this wonderful community possible!
Hahaha... I don't maintain this figure eating rice cakes!
haha! Well, the dirt I sold, you probably wouldn't want... My dad was a plastering / stucco contractor. When I was really young (like 4 or 5) I saw that my dad had extra stucco after some of his jobs. There was one pile of it that had deteriorated and was like powder / dirt. I thought, "People pay daddy to put this stuff on their houses, so it must be valuable!" I took pages of an old yellowpages phonebook, folded them into little packets / envelopes, filled them with this stucco dirt, and taped it closed. I then went door-to-door trying to sell my packets of fancy dirt.
Thank goodness that our neighbors are good people... they willingly paid the $0.01 I was charging per bag in an effort to support my growing business.
This is just TOO funny!!
What an enterprising kid you were, lol.
Ya, I did all kinds of stuff to make money as a kid. When I was about 9 years old we got one of the first Macintosh computers ever built. I used it's draw / paint program to create a services price sheet... like $0.25 to rake leaves, $0.50 to wash a car, etc. I still see the kind old lady on our street that used to buy my services. I used to think she was just really nice for buying my services, but now I'm realizing she got a REALLY good price, even if the work was kinda shotty!
