Happy Canada Day for those of you who are Canadian.
I was doing some unpacking last week and I found a bunch of unopened mail and various other documents. I haven’t moved lately, but I still had a box or two of junk to go through from my 2nd last move (six years ago).
Anyway, I found an old birthday card from my Mom. She always gives me $100 for a birthday present. The card was opened, but the cheque was still in the card. Unfortunately the banks don’t take cheques dated from 2004. Luckily she was visiting at the time and give me $100. No mention of any accrued interest however.
