The New Stuff

A Handful of Change and Memories


One day (long, long ago) when I was young, I was playing outside and found some change on the ground. At first, I thought, “wow, I found a dime!” Then I looked around on the ground and there was more than just a dime! There were several dimes, nickels and even several quarters. I felt rich (and at the age of 7 or 8, I was)! After I gathered all that I found, I looked at my new fortune and said, “that’s a lot of change!”

Those were the days my friend, we thought they would never end…

Ok, let’s not break out into song just yet!

I was always finding money on the ground and I have some fond memories from the experiences. However, my favorite is the story of The $5 Dollar Bill.

A few years later and now living in El Paso, Texas, at the age of 10, I was riding my bike to school with a friend. We were racing and he was ahead of me. His tire hit something and it flew into the air. I screeched to a halt as I recognized this to be a dollar bill. To my surprise, it wasn’t a dollar bill but it was a $5 dollar bill!

When I caught up to my friend, he asked why I stopped and I told him I thought something was wrong with my bike! I always felt guilty that I never shared that $5 dollar bill with him! LOL


That $5 Dollar experience was one of the best I have had. You have to realize the value this represented. Since the time of this find, the buying power of that $5 Dollar bill would be equivalent to a 10 fold increase today!

To put this in perspective, today, I could buy 2 gallons of gasoline for $5 Dollars (and the price just dropped a lot recently). Back then, (if I were driving), I would have been able to purchase 30-50 gallons of gasoline (depending on the gas price wars). I could give you more examples like buying a candy bar for a nickel instead of $1.50 today.

The reason I am writing about this is because that feeling from the experience is the same feeling I am having working online with Compumatrix. 

I may not have shared that $5 Dollar Bill with my friend but I will NOT miss that opportunity to share Compumatrix with my friends.
