The best $99 I ever spent

Back in the '80's a friend and I went to a Barry Manilow concert at the Greek.  Outside, there was a little table set up trying to get people to buy lifetime memberships to the Barry Manilow International Fan Club.  The lifetime membership was $99. 

The friend took a form and gave it to me as a joke.  Well, I thought it was a good value so I joined.  It has been twenty-somethng years now and it works out to about $4 a year.  Some years I get T-shirts, some years key chains, and every year I get a pin.

This is what I got in the mail Friday.  Best $99 I ever spent!
