Cash it or frame it?

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! 

Cretta: Really?

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.


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". :)

To make matters even more dramatic, stamps are actually $.49! Ha ha
