      I'd bet a big ol' pile o' corn bread and chicken on that.

        steamy hot corn bread with warm honey, yum!

        Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

                  In Canada since last year, Lottery tickets for a group can be split and printed in part at purchase time. So each player received a valid ticket and collect their own share, so if I buy 20$ tickets for a group of 10 people I will get 10 ticket on which you can read  2$ ( Represent 1/10 Parts from that Group) so if the group win 100$ , you go to any retailer and get your own 10$ share. No problem , no stealing, no need to claim together.

                    I like that idea. It probably cuts out the last minute "Hey I was supposed to get part of that!" nonsense from the jealous ones.

                    No tickee - no washee.

                    That's a great idea.
