I had forgotten that Sandy and I had an allowance back in 1975. Dad must have sent the money and enclosed a letter, mostly reminding us to be good, learn how to save, and to remember to pray for Sam-Sam.
Interesting to note: Dad spelled my name "Nicky", and Mom spelled it "Nickie". This explains why I continued to spell my name differently for much of my life! I've been using the "Nickie" spelling since college.
