And The Winner Is------
Which town is the lucky one? The town where the winners live or the town where the tickets were sold. Gosh! I don't know. John's little hometown west of here is a dead onehorse town (what ever that saying means) but there have been two lottery winners who live there but the thing is they both bought their tickets here in our town. Several years ago a man won the lottery and we hear he went broke and commited suicide after a few years. Now a lady has won, not the whole ball of wax because she didn't match the power ball just the rest of the number which brought her something like 200,000 I think. She was a brave woman to have her name and picture posted in our local paper. John says it didn't say anything about her having a husband but she will have one now. lol She says she is going to buy a new truck and fix her house up so I'm happy for her. John and I used to buy one ticket every week (we're big spenders) but haven't in several years so we said we were going to buy a ticket for tonight but we forgot. Probably a lot of people in our county had the same idea and what are the odds there would be another winner in our county?
