      Hi calabs,  I was surprised by this years ago, so I understand your question.  The trick here is to use STRAWBERRY JELLO with the figs.   Wink   TASTY!!

          If I buy a ticket it's because I thought I had a good shot at a win of some sort, at least enough to pay for the ticket.  I don't often buy tickets for that reason.

            Expecting to win the lottery is kinda like expecting to step on a plum. Think about it, it just don't happen that often. And it ain't likely to happen. That's not to say that anybody would be hoping to step on a plum anyway. And admit it, how many times in your life have you ever stepped on a plum? If you're honest, you'll admit you've never stepped on a plum. And if you saw the plum you'd probably walk around it.

            In retrospect, I don't think this is a very good analogy.

            Forget I ever mentioned it.

            I stepped on many plums in my life.  Maybe because we had 4 - 5 plum trees in our back yard.  But, I will tell you one thing.  I have seen thousands of pigons in my lifetime, but I have never seen a baby pigon.  I think they come from an egg & within seconds they become adult pigons.  Could be wrong, but who knows.................

              Lol, now that you mention it, I've never seen a baby pigeon either, Butch.

              And I've heard that possums are born dead on the side of the road too.

                    An American woman was watching this Iranian woman taking a long time checking out some potatoes in a grocery store. The American approched the Irianian and asked her why she was taking so long in picking a potato. The Iranian said that this particular potato reminded her of her Husband's..(AHEM).....The American said...."You mean they're that big?

                    The Iranian said...."No, that dirty"....

                        In Canada and some other countries, the above statement is against the law.

                        According to rdgrnr, the American culture protects and cherishes women. I guess only certain women get that courtesy.
