Helloooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Tom!
I did a calculation a while back but had forgotten about it until you mentioned it again. When you talk about your $168 you dismiss it as not much money. Well, your $168 is equivalent to $1,302.39 in today's dollars. That's MONUMENTAL for an adult let alone a 10 y/o. As I recall you reporting, 58% of Americans currently have less than $1000 in savings. Just thought I'd point that out.
Thanks for everything, dad!
Take care,
