A Yuletide Gift

Rather off-topic, but a good read none the less.

My dad grew up on a farm not to far from where I write this.  He often tells me stories of growing up, when his father finally got a paying job, having previously been a sustenance farmer.   When my grandfather passed away, they found years worth of paychecks that had never been cashed.   He simply didn't see a need for that much money.
