That should be did NOT pitch in the pool... 

Lightening struck twice:Dunk and rained on my little parade:

  1. I won the December 2002 Powerball, but I could not play my numbers because my old clunker stopped and everybody was too busy doing last minute shopping to take the time to indulge me in a "useless habit that I would never get anything from!"  Jack and I would have split that one. 
  2. The state (LA) lottery when there was an $11,000,000.00 jackpot.  "You should not 'gamble', so I stayed home.) One person wold have split that with me too.Same thing happened at the Greyhound Park 20 years, I had figured all the games up to the last.  I guessed the trifecta [I think that is what is called---I was SO perturbed that I never went back to play again] +&#*!*! 

Now, since I have matured, I am gearing up for the BIGGEST ONE EVER.  Old clunker, hold up or I going horseback!Razz

            just make sure if you see a set of #'s in your sleep....WAKE UP & write 'em down....

            Has anyone heard of Criss Angel or seen his show Mindfreak? He went to a radio station w/ a briefcase. Inside the briefcase was a tape recorder, a manilla envelope and a bag of balls w/ #'s on them. HE wrote 4 #'s on a piece of paper and had the DJ pick 1 ball out of the bag of balls. He then put the piece of paper w/ the 4 #'s on it & the ball into the manilla envelope. On the tape recorder he recorded the time and date. They then put the envelope and recorder into the briefcase and it was taken off by Wells Fargo. The next day, he went back to the radio station. He Opened up the briefase, took out the paper w/ the #'s on it and the ball out of the envelope (which was sealed), then the recorder. (basically the recorder was to prove that he picked the #'s the night of the drawing - for listeners the following day)..anyways..I am rambling...moral of the post is:

            Winning #'s: 3-10-28-29-31

            4 #'s written on piece of paper: 3-10-28-29

            The # on the ball taken out of the bag by the radio DJ: 31

            Basically...does anyone know how to get a hold of Criss Angel by tomorrow night????

                      I think I would just call it divine intervention and let it go. No use dwelling on it, and killing self over that.... nah, aint worth it.

                          Family/Friends reminded me I was addicted to lotto was my vote. Sometimes, my family tells me not to play lotto because I need to save money on buying other things. I don't play lotto unless CA SLP reaches 48 million or if Mega Millions reaches at least 300 million.

                            This is not the same thing, but still frustrating.  I matched 4 of 5 two draws in a row in the TN Lotto5.  I received a whopping $400 instead of the $600,000 jackpot.  Is this good luck or bad luck, hard to say?
