Did you ever expect to see an Income Tax Return that is 66 years old? Neither did I, but when I cleaned out my mom's desk, I found it. It is the year I was born, and the first year they could claim me on their return, so I suppose that is why they kept it (and why I find it hard to toss out).
On the right: a note my mom wrote listing the adoption expenses they incurred. I didn't cost them much back then, did I? Let's just say I made up for it in later years, with dance, vocal and piano lessons, to say nothing of clothing and college.
And the piece de resistance = a $1 cash receipt from 1932, which doesn't even say what was purchased. Now I ask you, who in the world would keep that receipt? My parents (and I guess me too)....LOL
