Our world has been flipped 180 degrees!

We're still in shock.

Charlie picked up a powerball ticket last night on the way home from work. We never play the lottery, but this past Christmas, Charlie bought lotto tickets as stocking stuffers. Needless to say, although we didn't win any money from those tickets - - we did win three free tickets. So, Charlie cashed in on them yesterday before they expired.

We wake up this morning and as we're watching the news ... up come the winning numbers, following the weather. The tickets were sitting on the kitchen counter. I don't know WHAT made me think to check the tickets ... but I did. And ... we won. WE WON THE LOTTERY. All 6 numbers match the 6 numbers on our ticket. We've checked and re-checked a thousand times.

The pot: $4,120,060.00

I don't know how much they'll take in taxes ... but even if it's 50%, that still makes us multi-millionaires!!!

Gotta run ... we're going shopping! :)



  1. That has got to be an April Fools joke. If not, could you sport us some cash?????

  2. OK, OK ... we've received a few phone calls from people on this - - already looking for money. :)

    Since we've just finished reading "The Da Vinci Code" and are intrigued by *signs* if you copy & paste my PS in to Word and convert the text to anything OTHER then Windings ... it will read: !!!YAD SLOOF LIRPA. This is APRIL FOOLS DAY!!! backwards.

    But, most people probably figured out the jackpot was a hoax considering the amount: $4,120,060.00 ... if converted to a date is: 4/1/2006.

    Sorry folks. We have no extra $$$ to lend. It's being absorbed by the diaper fund! The good news is ... April is here!!! :)
