Pin money?

You must be old as the hills!

I ain't heard that since Mamaw passed 45 year ago.

   Never heard that expression .............."Pin money " ........until now ........

   From what I read , the best thing to do is .......plan , and hide so the world

  doesn't see you , or move to a state that's anonymous .  The sooner you plan

  and turn in the ticket better off you're????

      It seems that the lucky winner did everything right to keep her privacy, she is in hiding. Oh BTW, according to the attached story it was another QP! Sorry Ronnie!! Big Grin

            while admittedly the "pin money" expression isn't that common, somewhat shocked that it is that uncommon. i've alway thought it referred to money you pocket for yourself after you pay your bills to spend on something regarded by most as foolish. such as scratch off tickets or potato chips or candy etc.  moving to a state that's anonymous would be like "shutting the barn door after the horse has left". another obviously outdated expression. to turn in your ticket sooner so that you don't miss out on a couple of weeks interest seems trivial after winning over 100million. best time to turn it in would be about 10 minutes before closing on a friday to help avoid unwanted attention by the media etc....i might be confusing "pin money" with "mad money", nevertheless it is your money that you carry on you, although today debit cards have replaced it. again, moving to a state that's anonymous "after" you win doesn't seem to make any sense.

              I looked it up and it said it might date to Henry the VIII's time. Women were given extra money by their husbands for the expensive pins which were in fashion. I know I have heard the expression in some old movies..1950's or before. I thought it meant money pinned inside your shirt for an emergency...lol

                    outside looking in, the area doesn't look too bad, however, it'll be a place she no longer can go back as she already has vultures in the form of a realtor looking to do "business"

                      I wouldn't mind doin' a little "business" with that realtor. Naughty

                      And not that I would.

                      Far be it from me to even think about it.

                      Perish the thought.

                        The good thing about getting the money after 4-6 weeks is that she will have ample time to think and plan. I guess it's ok to splurge a little bit buy the things that she desires but then back to reality she has to carefully plan and spend her money wisely. People might take advantage of her so she has to be careful not to fall with other people's trap. But of course I hope she will give back to her community.
