Checks in the mail.

After enjoying a long weekend with my family in a beautiful setting I returned home to find a check in the mail. A check for a settlement with a credit card. A settlement I knew nothing about. The check was for $1.71. Yes, the decimal is after the one. As I tossed it aside I realized, in some places $1.71 was like winning the lotto.

Oh, the things you can do with $1.71! (Isn't that a Dr. Seuss book?) I thought the same thing on a somewhat different plane while I was chopping meat to put in some stew last week. I looked at the abundance of red meat on my cutting board, enough that I cut off all of the fat and discarded it. How many people could that feed? Good to have perspective. Good to be thankful.

And they spent 30+ cents to send it to you. Funny.
