Getting the Driveway Fixed!

You know how George W. $hrub sent us all some money as a bribe a way to stimulate the economy? Well, instead of buying useless plastic crap, sending our money out of the country, or into the hands of fellow countrymen who don’t give a shit about me or the planet, I spent it on getting the driveway fixed.

I hired Shaun, who lives here in town. He bought the gravel from Circle 3 who also delivered it. They too are in town. The rest of the money paid for our vacation in Maine. John, the man we rent from, lives year round across the street from the cottage we rent.

We kept the money as local as we could, hiring our neighbors. We then kept he money in New England by paying for vacation. I feel good about it.

What did you spend your bribe stimulus check on?

    Don’t worry we going to spend we don’t want to be some type of odd ball.

    Our stimulus check just got folded in to our regular finances. It was a bit of a buffer for the rise in food/fuel costs, and it helped soften the blow of the dog’s medical expenses earlier in the year. It wasn’t money burning a hole in our pockets.

    I think it’s awesome that you kept your money local like that.
