Patience, or The Benefits of Time


Back when Gough Whitlam was Prime Minister and I only had 10 grandchildren I decided to put aside $100 a month so that when each of the grandchildren got a vote they could celebrate the occasion with a splurge (if that was their choice).

When we had 14 grandchildren I upped the monthly deposit to $140.

All 14 grandchildren have received $3,000 on their 18th birthday. I stopped putting money in when the youngest turned 14 (she is now 22) and the fund that was established now stands at $10,600.

Wine matures with time. So too does money!

PS. I spent what was left over!
