Zack was getting rid of some old Pfizer paperwork when he came across an old certificate from some stock that we bought on our own back in 2000. We had originally invested $1000, and we watched it go right in the toilet when the company tanked and went out of business (it's an oil and gas company), or so we thought! Zack decided to check into it and found out that they had simply changed their name, and our stock is now valued at over $1500 and climbing! It's funny because we had really agonized over that lost money- it had come out of one of Zack's bonuses at a time when we didn't have much extra money. And to know that it's still there (even such a small amount) makes us feel really great!! Hey, maybe Santa WILL come this year- just kidding!!!
