I can look out my kitchen window and see the place of one of this mans part time jobs. In fact, he is a coffee club member.

I started counting the number of folks I knew that have won a Lottery of some sort and had to  give up at six.

It took a while.

Then the thought of “Why not me?” occurred to me.

Then I remembered: “You can’t win if you don’t buy tickets.”

I suppose I’m just unlucky. Maybe I’ll buy one. Some day.

About tenwhiskey

User tenwhiskey is also the author of this blog. He currently lives in small town Kansas in a semi-retired condition. His kids are married and gone (thank you). An empty nester. Divorced. Very happy with life as it is. Ten Mile maintains a personal blog here, writing of events as they appear to him; commentary, and opinions abound. He deviates into fiction as the mood strikes and creates flash fiction stories and short stories. He will not warn the reader when he drifts from fact to fiction. He feels adults are, generally, smart enough to figure out which is which. He does, however, attempt to make his fiction sound as true to life as possible. You have been warned. He, as time permits, writes and occasionally sells writing. More often than not he gives it away to various non-paying publishers of Ether Magazines, forums or for entertainment on a wall for in need of a hand friends. He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.

    “It only takes a dollar and a dream.”
    That was the motto for Lotto in NYC when I was a kid. Simple, yet effective marketing device. I still remember it 25 years later.

  2. Hello, Pauly. Thanks for stopping by. Noticed the Linkedin shout out. Good. Noticed also that you’ve been on the road again. The fellow that won the money is a pretty nice individual. His wife allows one of their kids walk from school (about half a mile) to the library each day while she works at various housekeeping jobs. The Library baby sits the kid for the day and is picked up by the mother in the evening (around five or six o’clock. Long day for the kid, but it beats her being a latch key kid in a one horse town with no supervision at all. Things will probably change now. I’m happy for them.
