Paying it forward really pays.

As I posted last, I have no car.  It died and would only go click click.  A friend of mine happens to read this blog and got a hold of me reminding me that the kid (I use to term loosely for anyone under 30) that I gave a HD TV and surround sound system too just happens to be a mechanic.  I tucked that away in my memory bank and got the starter changed.  Now all it wants to do is go wzzzzzz.  So I called Liz who in turn called the mechanic.  He is coming out tomorrow to take a look at it.  And this is all because I gave a friend of a friend a TV that I didn't want to throw away because it still worked.  I am not too sure if that was paying it forward but that good karma is sure kicking in when I need it.

The morale of the story is to help out others where you can.  You never know, they might be able to help you out in turn.


  1. I'm very happy to hear this. You and Sean are always so willing to help others you certainly deserve for that good karma to come back to you. I hope he can find what's wrong and fix it cheaply enough that you can still do Norwescon.

  2. The worse case scenario has occurred. Well not the worse care scenario. Dustin is going to help us out in changing out the engine. No car for few months. That is going to drive me insane.

  3. Shaiha, keep us posted. I pray for the day when I can do away with automobiles. Taxes and insurance are out of control. Hang in there with the good karma.
