Ey positivity,good vibes, and faith tied along with action goes along way

You can have those things BUT if you do not have the winning ticket- you come up empty,  every time Dude.Count on it.

There's a political statement out there " it's the economy stupid."

For every lottery players " It's the winning ticket stupid. "

    So did he win because his an old codger, or because he watered the flowers surrounding the Virgin? 

    He won because he bought tickets.

            I really like your signature on Zig, it mirrors mine in many ways Z.

          * On a personal note* right.  I am not going to let some punk tell me " it can't be done..unless l'm in the middle of quicksand & all options have been exhausted.

                  Holy Mary Mother of God...
                  at least someones prayers are being heard/answered!

                  also nice to see someone won something besides a free ticket
                  from a scratch off. I bet the store clerk wished they would have
                  scanned that one before selling it!!!

                    I say some people should play more winnable games so they can atleast feel like a lottery winner

                      He won because that's how random chance and probability work. Just like Jack Whittaker, David Lee Edwards, and all of the various criminals and sex offenders who have won the lottery.

                              I Think Mainly He Believed In Superstition More Than Anything
