My parents resided a nursing home for several years before my father passed away on January 1, 2011. Then my mother passed away two years and a few weeks later on January 23, 2013.
Now, two years later, imagine my surprise to get an envelope from the nursing home. i opened it up wondering the whole time what it could possibly be. To my surprise it was a check! Wow...I wasn't expecting that! What nice surprise!
I had to call my sister...
Me: Cretta, I got an envelope in the mail from the nursing home. I was really surprised to open it up and find a check inside!
Me: Yeah! I am wondering if you think you and I should just split it or if we should let Bill know about it and split it with him too.
Cretta: How much is it for?
Me: One cent.
Cretta: One cent??
Me: Yes, one cent.
Both of us: BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
I can't make this stuff up!
Really? Did they seriously just spend $.46 to send me a check for $.01? Yes they did! BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Cretta said she would give up her third so Bill and I could split it.
I am still trying to decide if I should cash it or frame it! :P
I guess my blog is appropriately named after all.... "Loretta's Little Life". :)
