So long, Shleprock!


Would you believe that I have known two people
 who have won multi million dollar prizes
 in the Georgia Lottery?
 It's true. 
 One of them is a former student;
the other is a woman from my very small hometown.

But that's just child's play. 
I also live just a few country miles from a couple
 who won $275 million dollars
in the Powerball.
Seriously.
Here's their house.

Looks a lot like mine.

I, on the other hand, can't win a Chicklet
in a blogland giveaway.
And  it's not for lack of trying.
I love to enter contests.  
I don't care if it's the HGTV Dream House
or a scratch off game at the grocery store.
I'm in the game. 

My store is doing one right now, in fact.
Just match three $cratch offs, and you win a prize.

 

I never even match two of them. 
I have two dozen loser tickets in the bottom
of the incredible traveling innie.
Because, apparently, I'm a Schleprock.

But wait...
I'm pleased to announce that
 the tide has turned.
Your humble yakker is no longer the biggest loser.
She is the winner
recent giveaway!

I will be the proud owner of some 
spiffy vinyl house numbers

Like this.
Isn't that great?

But wait...
There's yet  more.
Today,
we went to the grocery store,
 and you'll never guess what happened...


I won a dollar.
It's official.
I'm on a roll.

Congrats-It's fun to win sometimes, makes you remember why you play the game in the first place!

You're on a winning streak! Who knows what might be next...Maybe a centerpiece at the DAR conference, and just think of the possibilities that you could craft with that win! I can't wait to see those numbers. I can only imagine what you'll do with those. Now the dollar, that will take some contemplating!
Hugs,
Denise

Now don't be takin off for Vegas to cash in on that winning streak.

I'm happy for you Debbie, you are lucky - in love and in life, blessed with a wonderful family, good husband and brilliant daughters.
I'd say you hit the jackpot!

Sharlotte said...

Well, congratulations! Looks like things are changing for you!!! Perhaps "knowing" BIG winners is paying off!
I hardly ever win anything either, I guess it just makes it really special when luck does land your way! Thanks for stopping by to visit ~ maybe today is your "lucky" day!

Wow! You better run out and get you a lottery ticket right now!!! Hurry, before the luck wears off!!

I NEVER win anything! I did win a great magazine at Amanda's blog a few months ago. No lottery though, unfortunately. I've got plans for that $$ if I ever do win though.

It did make me feel better that someone I actually know won Suzanne's giveaway. At least I could be excited for you!! Now, run out and get a lottery ticket!
