With the Powerball craze that is going on I planned on doing my first real hard "educated guess" this drawing (Wednesday) to see if I can get the jackpot... Like everybody else. However it falls the day before my payday. I have a few checks in the bank that "may" clear before then. But I'm looking at under $20 to invest in my Powerball activities. I wanted to do my own picks and a few quickpicks and "invest" a total of about $100. Should I feel bad that I can only do 20% or less than what I wanted, or maybe I'll pick the right numbers and win on my less than $20 investment!

 

Here's to hoping either way!

    Combine 80 dollars worth of work and research with 20 dollars worth of tickets and you'll have a $100 effort!

      Ha! That's why you get paid the big bucks. That's a good idea Big Smile. Then if my checks clear it'll be that much better

       

      Thanks for the welcome See Ya!

        Whenever you're low on cash and you can't play with more money than you have..........remember the guy in S.C. who stopped for gas and bought a $2 powerplay ticket and won 265 MILLION DOLLARS.......that always brings me back to reality.....you only need one set of numbers....so don't blow the bills money trying to win something that $2-$3 can get you.......I'd wish you luck but I'm trying to win too LOL.......Hey maybe we can both hit it........and split it LOL
