I was standing at the bus stop yesterday & 3 homeless guys from the local shelter were sitting on the bench talking.  One guy was telling a story of how a few days ago he took his last dollar & had pu ot on a number.... "2429".... it DID NOT come out, all he had was the 9.

I gave him a dolloar & told him to play the number again.(I played it also)

Today's Connecticut midday # was 2924.... a boxed hit for $400!!!

I HOPE he played it & did not do something else with the dollar I gave him!

      I never give homeless people money. Most of the time they blow it on a bottle of cheap booze or cigarettes.

      If hungry I buy them food at a fast food restaurant. If its cold out, I'll buy them a warm hat or gloves.

      Bless you Dollie. Glad to see you've been rewarded for your act of kindness.

      Play responsibly and have fun,  Chas

          i do. what they spend it on is between them and God. if they need booze or cigs to get through the day - it's ok with me.

          love to nibble those micey feet.

            Emily, I agree with you!!! :-)

            We never know what causes one to become homeless, however I look at them and get teary eyes.  The next thing that comes from my mouth as I hand them a buck or two is God bless you.  As I roll my window up I say "but for the g race of God, there am I"--I never want to loose sight of this reality.  God Bless you Emily!!!

              God Bless you Dollie,

              I hope he played it.    It's not something I do often, but I will give at times if they say it's food.  Who knows the real reason, I just tell myself if what I gave helps that's all that counts.

                    Why do homeless guys wear 6 pairs of pants in the summer? I think they would be much more comfortable wearing 6 pairs of shorts.
