9 year old girl fixes porsche

Last week I backed the box into the rover..

(Forgot it was in front of the garage because of a christmas light situation) Took it apart to fix the bumper and tailight to be fixed. Today my 9 year old daughter gives me a hand made card that reads like this Dear, Daddy (she uses caps) I love you this money can go torges your damgem that you did to your Boxer S xoxoxoxoxo Love, Charlotte. brings me to tears as I write this as well as when reading it today....it was 20 of her own money and wont take it back. just thought i would share the love so to speak.

Sounds like daddy's little girl will be getting a used Porsche for her 16th birthday. Try to keep it in good shape until then.
Great story!!
