This weekend Dad was going through some papers and found some old notes of my sisters and I. Apparently at some point we each made a list of what we would buy if we had one thousand dollars. Since we were quite young they are pretty funny.
AJ generously put down a large gift for each of us before choosing one for herself and leaving some money for savings. Sis's was the funniest, with a huge list of things all crossed out, leaving just one thing and a note to put the rest in the bank.
As for mine, well, here it is. The nice handwriting is AJ's. ;-)
Translation: I would buy three horses, some groceries, an Indian doll, an aquarium, some hay, a piece of property with a barn....And put the rest in the bank.
The Indian doll mentioned is one thing on that list I did eventually buy. My great-aunt hand-crafted beautiful dolls the size and weight of a sixteen month old baby. Some of them, like the one I have, were Native American.
I must say, though, my favorite part of this list is where AJ estimates the cost... ;-) BTW, AJ, I want to know where I can get three horses and property with a barn for less than $5,000!
