I’m proud to continue a tradition that our parents started when I was young… For me, I grew up in an easily nice condo with a great central air conditioning system plus plenty of other great stuff.
- But for our parents, they grew up absolutely poor instead; there were even times for both of them that they weren’t able to get new clothes or even enough to eat at times… Of course, they grew up inside homes that didn’t have residential heating and A/C.
But they both made the best of their circumstances, got to college plus came out with an education. That led to careers for both of them plus a nice lifestyle as well. But our parents were regularly keenly aware of where they came from… And they easily put their cash where their mouth was… When it came to winter holidays, they made sure they had a little envelope full of cash for all the repair people in our lives. That was the milkman, the postman plus even the heating and A/C professional… I do not have a milkman anymore plus my friend and I have a post office box. But I like to continue the tradition of these cash envelopes on winter holidays! Hardly any of weeks ago, I laid one on the heating and A/C professional who was here doing the heating repair on our gas oil furnace. She thought I was paying him for the heating and A/C repair. I explained to him that I was just grateful for all her efforts year in and year out when it came to taking care of the heating plus cooling component in our home. This absolutely blew that guy’s entire mind apart.
