thanks chewie for your insight into our situation, however let me assure you we packed our belongings and labeled boxes, etc... there is always clutter when you have been together with the same person for 18 years, you sounded more despondent that we had let a winning lottery ticket get away, than trying to encourage us to find it.... let me tell you also, this happens quite often, check out the news posts someone in New Mexico has lost a $200,000 ticket and it has expired...  I am more than careful with my driving, I appreciate your consideration for my children and grandchildren, We just got caught up in something and made a mistake, happens to the best of us, i am trying to be as sane as I possibly can here, hell man we need that money, could you use $100,000 ?  hopefully someday we will all understand why things like this happen...

    I spent 23 years in the Army, I have moved a hundred times, and will move a few more times.  Hell, I've moved six times in the last five years.  Never once have ever I lost anything.  I even had items in storage for years.  When I unpacked, everyhing was were I placed it. It is called organization.  Military families, with three, four, or five kids, do it every day of the year, all over the world.  They sit on boats for weeks, with only what they can carry and manage to maintain a family.  Some of them have been married for 30 years.  It is not that difficult of a thing. 

    Quite often losing $200,000? Hehehehe.  What, three unorganized individuals, or a couple dozen, in a world of several BILLION!  You call that quite often!  You want encouragement?  You want sympathy? That is what mommie and daddy are for.  You're an adult, act like a responsible person.  You bought a ticket, you lost it.  You call that being careful?  Your mind didn't drift just once and you lost a chance of a lifetime.  The world doesn't work that way.  Forgetfulness is a pattern.  You screwed up your chance, no one else.  Life is a bitch, then you die.  No one needs to burp you any more.  You know what you have, and what can be looked at. Go look at it!  You need some one to tell you how to survive?  You need money, so do billions of other people.  You lost the ticket!  Option one, find it!  Option two, do with out!  Me?  Instead of wasting time on the keyboard, I would take everything I own outside, one item at a time, and eliminate it from the possibility.  You?  Keep hoping some one else can solve the problem you created!  If you don't find, get organized for the next chance at life.

    Cheers

            Ok update, after being tonguelashed by sargent chewie I'm almost afraid to post another message.... taking a little break from the search, then we are going back at it.. have went through about half the boxes....... found several hundred old tickets...... have several places to look yet..... truck compartments..... desk drawers...... misc.....  this is just a miscue on my part and should never have happened really.... I never took the time and checked the ticket like I should have or we wouldn't be having this conversation....... my kids are not even helping me out with the search.... my wife and mother in law are helping, but kids think it's a waste of time and a big joke..... all in all I am ok, not as bad as chewie would have you believe, apparently he has never won a dollar playing the lottery, and then someone that is opposite of him comes along and has a winning $100,000 lottery ticket and loses it in a moment of life, and he freaks.... sorry chewie, I am not military minded nor am I a section 8 private pyle style sir... just made a mistake, don't want sympathy, just looking for suggestions and insight.... hopefully after finding something that was very sentimentally valueble to me while looking for something else, the tide will turn.........  be back later with another update.........  as they say in old Ireland  "cheers"

              OK Irish.... (I'm half harp meself):

              St Anthony is the patron saint of lost articles, and there's actually a prayer:

              St. Anthony, St. Anthony, please come around
              There's something lost that must be found...

              Might be worth giving it a try!

                Geez Chewie, you need to lighten up or be sure to apply your hemmoroid cream in the right place next time. To me it doesnt look like the man has come here for a hard core "lesson" on organization.

                If you want to be a motivational speaker on such things though I am sure there is a university or old folks home who may take you up on that offer.

                As for you Olmazey, I feel for you. I had 40 million dollars SO CLOSE once that it sickens me. But, I know now it just wasnt meant to be. Make sure you look everywhere.

                I am sure you meticulously labeled your boxes to the delight of some of our more scrutinizing posters. So, make sure you give them all a good search.

                With lots o luck and Irish well wishings to you.

                Savannah~

                    thanks psycho, we as a family could all use a little laughter right about now...you have done well and we want to thank you for it...... we still have around 35 or 36 hours to search and find and validate.... we have been through about half the items we wanted to look through..... we will continue in the morning around 7:30 and be cleaning house most of the day......  I had a blessing from God, and evidently something I have done in the last 6 months has killed the blessing.... that is what the spiritual side is telling me.. It will come to pass, just as everything else has before me...  thank you again for the humor and suggestions, If I find it in my truck, which happens to be a chevrolet  "C"  I hereby declare to pay unto you the sum of $1000.00 dollars.....

                                            bank on it....

God Bless....

                              "update"  it appears there won't be a party here tonite, the time to validate the ticket has expired as of 5 pm..  We gave it our best shot, but it was not meant to be...  there will be more chances to win I am sure......  I want to thank everyone who offered their help and suggestions.... thank you very much...  just a hard situation to be in, when you don't know where to look to start with....  if you ever move and play the lottery, make sure you keep your tickets in a safe place.... "clutter" has just cost us a chance to be somewhat prosperous for 2006....
