Sad    Ok where can I possibly begin?  It appears after throughly checking resources yesterday and today..... I likely may have the unclaimed "cash 5" lottery ticket worth $100,000 that was purchased last Sept 15 at a safeway in Fairfax, Virginia.... I just recently discovered the scenario and that the ticket expires at 5pm Monday... Now the sad part is, we can't find the ticket... we moved on December 15, 2005 and still have alot, of boxes packed away and have been going through some of them, but so far no "Irish" luck here.... What a way to start St. Patricks Day week, next week, oh God the agony we are going through right now is unbelievable.... according to the Virginia Lottery spokeman that I spoke with today, I was the only one who had made a serious inquiry about the ticket... I was in that safeway store on the day the ticket was supposedly sold, and had never been in the store ever before. When I got to the counter, I noticed the lottery terminal and asked for 2 computer cash 5 tickets... well it now looks like that was the winning ticket, and we have been going through boxes and everywhere in between, so far to no avail... If anyone can deliver me a psychic with winning results, I will pay a small ransom for your services..  please help if you can, we will be looking allday tomorrow and sunday if need be, we have around 69 hours to locate and validate the ticket. this is a serious inquiry and all replies will be treated with the same... I cannot believe this is happening to us again, happened 7 years ago, and 5 years ago, oh yeah and I was born in 1957... please leave your reply and I will get back to you immediately.... I will provide my cell phone number to anyone that can be of serious help... remember a substantial reward will be paid to the one that helps with the retrival of the ticket... one thing I got going for me is I never throw away any tickets, have saved them all since 1988....  please do whatever you can to help, I will gladly repay with much kindness.... thanks for reading my long, long, post.....

        Or, it fell out of your junk drawer and is laying behind the drawer or it fell through and is laying on the ground, inside the cabinet. I found an old-old baseball card like that once.

         

        I hope you find that ticket.

            Did you buy any magazines or newspapers the day you bought that ticket? maybe it's being used as a bookmark.

              Lets start at the store.
              Was you wearing a jacket that has not been laundered. Could be in a pocket of clothing.
              You go to your vehicle. Check all the compartments in the vehicle.
              You go home. where do you most generally lay things like that when you get home.
              A calendar with those bill pockets in them. did you emty the caledar pocket into a box. counter tops. Generaly kitchens get first place to lay something.
              You have those magnets on the fridge to hold things were they put in a box
              .
              Next would be the bedroom area. dresser tops tables etc. Check the boxes from those areas.

                I have one more.

                Are you a coupon shopper.

                I see coupon shoppers carry around little folders to hold coupons. Did you put it in the coupon folder after purchase?

                  I can't imagine misplacing a winning ticket.  I always keep mine in my wallet and check them the day after the drawing.  I can't imagine ever HAVING a winning ticket.  I don't mean to put a damper on all this, but are you sure you've got it?  It ain't easy hitting all those numbers.  I hope you find it and I don't have any psychic abilities (or surely I would have won by now).  Maybe you should check where you keep your checkbook and stuff.  Maybe you put all the sensitive materials in one place and that's where it's at.  Good luck!

                    "update"        ok now just talked with a psychic on the phone and she seems to think, it is misplaced with our tax papers..... she sensed it was away from me, but not far....... the storage barn is about 60 ft. away.... there are file cabinets, boxes, and an old office desk, full of papers and old lottery tickets...  she also said my sign was in retograde {Tauras} and this was the reason I was having difficulty tracking this ticket down....................  I will be up late tonite no doubt.........

                                                                                            please continue to post suggestions....

                        good morning, getting ready to put an all out assault on the barn, and other storage areas......  was up late but not in the area where the psychic sensed the ticket could be at!!!!!!!!!  I would have thought there would be more than 10 posts, and from more than 3 people by now.... apparently everyone on this board has already won a major prize and is well offf  $$$$$    thanks to those that have been helpful with their suggestions thusfar, you will not

                        be forgotten regardless whether we find the ticket or not.....

                          are you sure the ticket wasn't lost in the last few months?  thrown away with trash?  not being negative...those scenarios out of the way......where would you usually store your tickets?  how many tickets was bought altogether that could've been accumulated and stored in one place?  ever have a special hiding spot?  go through all possibilities.

                              A hard lesson to learn about organization.  A place for everything, everything in its place.  Was valid a hundred years ago, and is still valid.  There a several aticles every year where a family drives off and leaves a child in a diner, or a person locks their baby in the backseat and goes to work - thus killing the child from heat stroke.  If people can't get their life together, sooner or later they are going to drive across a highway and kill a family in an oncoming car.  Get your act together people.  Stop trying to do more then you are capable of doing.  Loosing a winning lottery ticket is proof you can't handle what you have taken on.  Stop and get organized, before your distractions kill some one - like your child!  Not taking the time to pack, label boxes, organize cartons, is pure lack of planning and organization, and an indication of bigger problems.  The handwriting is on the wall, eaither read and heed, or keep walking into the wall.  Your choice, your penalty to pay.

                              Cheers
