Tonight, stuffed in a birthday card, there were $20 of random $1, $2, $3 and $5 scratch-its. 

I slowly scratched through the stack while watching TV, and I won $50 on a $2 Crossword, and $50 on a $5 ticket.  I sure thought that turned out to be a mighty fine birthday treat! 

Have you ever received scratch-its (or lottery tickets?) and won anything?

        Thank you, it was a wonderfully quiet day! 28 is a good age to hit a jackpot I think! Lep

         

        I went to cash in the crossword, and it turned out to have another word I had missed, to make it a $100 winner! So since I won more than I expected, I put in $40 and got 4 $5 tickets and 2 $10 tickets because I never get those (The occasional $5, but never $10) and I won $25, $15, and $10. So I turned my $40 into $50, and stopped while I was ahead! It was the gift that kept on giving!Party

          I remember being 28 once, many moons ago.

          Any age is a good age to hit a jackpot, but hitting it when younger is better so to enjoy life more completely and without all the worries.

          Time slips by so very fast. Enjoy every day!

            Yep, but not a big amount.
