Money Honey

Bares ist Wahres
80 New Zealand cents. But what can you buy with that? A few chips maybe, a bit of coleslaw or a burger bun? Certainly not an Elvis sandwich with peanut butter, banana and bacon. But it's worth a try, thinks Red, even if things didn't end well for Elvis. With a bit of luck and business savvy she and her mate might manage to scrape together enough money, even if it's just to cheer up Hank.
