From (High School Days)
Original Memory Interview Question

What was your largest purchase you made in High School? Was it worth the money?


His Response:

Probably the 1500 dollars I put down on the Suzuki that I have been driving ever since then (about 8 years now).

It definitely was worth it.

The thing that really sucked about it was the fact that it was almost my entire life savings up until then. I barely had any money left.

I remember in high school I used to compare everything to the amount of money it cost for a videogame system.

So if something like my car was equivalent to 8 playstation 2s.... that was some serious cash flow.

All of my life growing up at the Hendricks House , my grandma Taylor used to collect all of her pennies for months and give them to Verda Taylor my brother and I.

We stored them in a large glass water container that had to of been from the 1950's.  The container got so heavy over the years that it was so difficult to even lift.

So finally when I was in 8th grade, my brother, nicholas Azzaro and I counted them all up in my basement.

The total amount from pennies was roughly 400 dollars!  We spent all day counting them and the bank thought we were insane!

What an interesting thing for my grandmother, Verda Taylor to do.  Her growing up through the great depression sets precedence with what the true value of money is.

Original Memory Interview Question

In your grade school years, did you ever get any kind of allowance? What would you spend that on, or money on at that age?


Her Response:

I think I got 3-5 bucks a week for cleaning all the baseboards in the house. I hate baseboards.
