Not having thought about it a great deal up to now, Andy becomes quite worried about how he will manage to pay for Opie's college education which is only a few years away. The fees at private colleges are enormous and Opie may not have the grades to get into a State college, so he has a bit of a dilemma. Reading through the newspaper, he sees an ad for a turnkey laundromat advertised as being an easy way to earn a second income. He likes the idea of having something that won't take up too much of his time but as he soon learns, running any kind of a business has it's own requirements. Written by garykmcd
