YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA I gotta reply from rdgrnr    my life is now complete lol. no, i'm no where near the yanks, the only dc i live next to is deep country. i'm from southern va in a very rural small town.

I'm an Oracle ya know, vagirl.

And at first I's thinkin' Crooked Road.

Then Virgil Caine popped into my head.

You know,

Virgil Caine is my name

And I served on the Danville train

Til Stoneman's Cavalry came

And tore up the tracks again

In the winter of '65

I was hungry, just barely alive

I took the train to Richmond that fell

It was a time I remember oh so well

So natcherly, I'm thinkin' somewheres between Danville and Richmond and maybe some kinda connection with the Crooked Road.

Don't say where but am I anywheres close?

      Yes, you are correct, but maybe she is asking the wrong question. My wife often tell me that I am bossy!  Smash

       

      I just hope that this information is useful.

       

      My answer to her question no. What is, is and nothing more.

          In most games your odds remain the same when you buy a ticket, but there is a game in KY called Five Card Cash and your odds decrease after you buy your ticket. It has an "instant win" feature and the odds of winning something increase if you don't win instantly.

              That's interesting, Stack.

              Does the game information say that?

                  It would be nice if the time you brought your tickets effected your odd because most people have more time than they do money.

                   * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                    I buy mine at different times, different days, different locations. Mix it up a bit. When I win, I'll let y'all know.
