Wanna bet?

This is my lottery ticket. LOOK I won $15.00. 
My little Sis won a thousand dollars on this same lottery game scratch off yesterday.  She was so excited that she called me first.

There's a little bit of a funny story that goes along with her lotto win.
She scratched her thousand dollar win in her church parking lot . I'm betting she didn't tell the congregation that she won. :)

This brought back some fond memories of my Mom. She always said it was a SIN to gamble and that we shouldn't do it. But yet when she and I went out and I bought lottery scratch offs, she would be scratching MINE off going down the road and would say "If I win something big we will split it" I would always be wishing that she would scratch off something BIG on just one just so I could hear the excitement in her voice . She never did hit a big lottery win, but in typing this post I just realized although I didn't hit the big one here, I did in my heart because it brought back some precious memories of my Mom that put a :) on my face.

I really miss her!

In life I've learned it's always a gamble! It just depends on how much you are willing to risk.

Update~Here's a Copy of her ticket

She will be taking me out to dinner. 


  1. I played the lotto a lot when I lived in AZ. I never won anything. I gave up the habit cause coffee is expensive now and I need it more.

    Some people you just never quit missing.

  2. Admiral, Coffee prices have doubled and some brands have tripled around here.

    I still like to gamble but shhh don't tell anyone :-)

  3. Are you sure you're not a pilot? Bon appétit!

  4. That's awesome... good for her!

  5. Whoohooooooo! I hope you sis doesn't take you to McD and split the $1 menu meal with you. lol

  6. *your... I shouldn't laugh so much when I am typing.

  7. Hope you enjoy the dinner.

    Reminds me of a joke:

    A guy asks his wife, "What would you do if I hit the lottery?"

    She replies, "I'd take half of it, and leave your sorry ass!!!"

    The guy reaches in to his pocket and pulls out a lottery ticket. He says, "Well, this is your lucky day! I just won ten bucks. Here's your hit the road!"

  8. At least you get a dinner out of it.

  9. LOL, sometimes it's the 'little' wins that add up big!

  10. A thousand bucks is a helluva nice stocking stuffer!

    I still miss my Mom, too, and it's been 47 years since she left this vale o' tears.

  11. I think Buck went to Sunday School.

    Just sayin'...

    I've still got my Mom with me. Probably not for very much longer, though. The clock ticks faster these days.
