Cars of beauty and art:
I am sure this is a 1955 Nash Rambler.
Seldom, but occasionally companies make ‘money mistakes’. When Sherry and I decided to look for a bigger motor home than the little Ranger, we drove to Florida (This was before the internet and smart phones.) We did have a bag phone. We found the prices about the same as NC. But thanks to a wheeler dealer RV searcher like us, we found a 38 foot Overland at a good price because the other guy had already negotiated the price.
(This is the Overland. Sonny and Colette on one of our trips together. They were great traveling partners.)
With an open equity line on our home in NC we wrote a check for the coach. I have told this before, but after a month the check did not clear so I opened a savings account to cover the check. The bank was paying 6%+ on savings. After a few months I told Sherry they were going to give us the coach. LOL . It was over 6 months before the check cleared and we earned about $800 in interest in the savings account while waiting
During our just past, ‘summer to forget’, we had the ‘condos’ re-roofed. Our insurance paid us. We were holding $13,000 to pay for the roof, but we never received a bill. I wrote the company a letter asking for a final bill so we could pay it before heading south. We never heard from them. I told my sweetheart the other day, “I think they forgot about us and they are doing so well they don’t miss $13,000.”
We ran a business and there was no way I could forget a bill over $100 (or less! Lol). At the end of the month I would know.
As it should be, Sherry got the call from Mr. Max, “Did you guys pay for the roofing yet?”
They had filed my letter with the job and forgot it. I told Sherry she should have told him we used the insurance money to pay for the engine down in Atlanta. WE will catch it up as soon as we can.
But no, we sent the check in the day he called. One more thing out of the way. Now the ONLY things we must do that are hanging over us from THAT SUMMER are:
