    Would someone please explain how I would transfer a picture like the one above to my own post when responding. Does it require special gadgetry or do I just click on something?

      There was an article in my local paper, The Sydney Morning Herald, about this.

       

      When asked what he plans to do as a brand new multimillionaire, lottery winner Robert Harris answered simply: "Live happy."

      The 47-year-old iron worker used to have to work overtime just to make ends meet for 20 years. He and his wife, Tonya, lived in a trailer while dreaming of building a big house in the country where their two children and six grandchildren could visit.

      Now that's all in the past.

      The couple won Friday's $275 million Mega Millions jackpot — the largest prize won by a single player in Georgia Lottery history. With it, they plan to build that dream house, pay for their grandchildren's college education and shower their family with presents.

       

      "They'll get anything they want," Robert Harris told a crowd of reporters gathered at the lottery's downtown Atlanta headquarters Monday afternoon.

          This man looks so tired, the way he bows his head  gazing at the check, he is astonished, and still can't quite believe it.  It has definitely been a hard 47 yrs. Ya never know what people are going thru!

          Good luck to both of them and their family!!!

                I wonder what he is doing now?  I bet He is on a white sandy beach drinking tropical drinks waiting for his fresh seafood he just ordered. Not a care in the world.  

                I do that all the time ....  just skip the "not a care in the world" part!  Yes Nod

                 

                Actually, in my case you can skip the fresh seafood thing too.  The closer you get to the ocean, the more expensive the fish is.  LOL

                    Yeah, I would think him and his wife would like their name on it.

                      you can alway right click on any photo on the internet and  "save as" to your own document folder to use for later.  you can also take any file and save the target to whatever you want, depending on  the file extension.  You may come across files that are blocked.  Its rare but it happens.

                        Probably still waiting for his actual check and getting the run around.

                          He probably was the one that bought the ticket.

                           

                          My hubby doesn't play the lottery.  Actually he thinks it is foolish.

                          When I win, he wouldn't want his name near the check.

                            If you are legally married it doesn't mater which partner signs the check you are both entitled to an equal share of the win.

                            Big John says. You don't hit the number. The number hits you!!!!
