Suddenly Found...

Sam was looking through some old boxes.  And he found this:

My Mommy made this for me and it's dated for Christmas in 1981.  I was about 1 1/2 at the time so I don't remember getting it, but I DO remember putting lots of change in it.  I can't remember the butterfly ever being whole.  I counted up the sum total of my early attempts at saving and came up with $10.72.  Oh... and there was a token from Chuck E. Cheese in Oakland (says so, right on the coin), two Canadian coins and Tooth-fairy money.  But I didn't count the Tooth Fairy money in my savings total.  Because you NEVER.  SPEND.  your Tooth Fairy money.  It's bad luck... or something like that.  :)
