... tickets from a local TV station.  Does that count as winning the lottery?  Evil Looking  Cuz that's the best I've done in decades.

What kind of tickets.

    I haven't received the prize package to check for myself for certain, but the TV station guy who called me said it's a voucher that I can use to buy $75 worth of anything the Idaho lottery sells.  Glad it wasn't a scratch off pack like so many give away cuz I never win scratchers.


    You have a strategy for spending it to my best advantage?  I'm betting I have to spend it all at once, but I won't know for sure till UPS gets here which isn't usually till 5 pm or so.

      Perhaps you bought a $5k vacation package to get your "free" $75. in lottery tickets.....What?

          Naw dude, I wouldn't fall for that.  I also got a $200 gift card to a local jewelry shop for one small fee.

            I got the package yesterday and I got ...

             

            wait for it ...

             

            yeah you guessed it ...

             

            They didn't send the voucher.  How did I know they'd send 75 - $1 scratch offs instead.  Grrr.  Wish they hadn't told me it was a voucher cuz I was really disappointed and a little bit pizzed to find a packet of worthless scratch offs.  Did I mention I hate scratch offs?

            So now there are little black lottery filings all over the house, and I only won $35 offa 75 tickets.  Biggest prize was four bucks.  Mad

                    Congratulations!  (In my household $35 is a lot of money these days.)   Hope you buy a winning ticket with one of those dollars.

                      Yeah, it's not exactly pocket change here either.  I was a little miffed because I was led to believe I could spend it however I wanted.  And did I mention that I hate scrtchers?  I'm starting to get over it today tho. lol 


                      I'm off right now to cash in a few to buy my Idaho raffle ticket, and a megamillion for tonight's drawing.
