WWWHHHHHEEEEWWWWWW!!!!!!!

WOWIE!!!! We dodged another bullet. Squeezed by. Ducked in the nick of time. AND luckily, Lady Luck missed us by a Country Mile (thats down the road a bit).

After getting the Princess her coffee this morning, and groggily reading the news that there were three winners in PowerBall last night, i remained calm. Didn't run off to check our too numerous numbers. Didn't even look them up on line, till later.

Grenville in Disguise showing tickets
YES,,,, that is me, Grenville in disguise, checking out our numbers. First i checked the PowerBall number. You know the one that has to be there or "you're out". Number 10. Not a one on any of the tickets. You remember all those extra tickets???? The No Change tickets???? The ones i thought might have been an 'Omen", an sign from above of good luck to come. Or was that the omen to  "Read directions BEFORE inserting cash".

Well, that took a lot of weight off the shoulders. No wondering what to do with all that money. No
Unknowns we all have
My Favorite Sign
worrying where to hide from the 'Wood Pile' relatives. No debating whether to splurge and have Hot Dogs with our daily Beans. I tell
ya, i was relieved!!!!!

Now, being a PowerBall neophyte, i starting checking the tickets to see if any ticket had more than one of the picked numbers. One by one the tickets came up losers. The best we had was two on a ticket.
Later today we will take them to the store and have them checked. Of course we have a better chance of seeing a Snowy Owl flying into our window.
QUICK!!!!!! Open the window!!!!!!
SO loyal readers of our mundane adventures, fear not that we will succumb to the power of the Lotto Cash Cow, retire from blogging, and leave you in a lurch without our exciting posts. (who is he kidding?????)
Grenville, still poor, but happy with his Princess. ;-}}}

I don't buy tickets very often but bought one for this PB. Not to my surprise but it was a LOSER!!! I am not the gambler in the family. Hubby likes to go to Foxwoods and I bring a book, lol... Hugs, LJ

I am also one of the lucky ones who will not have to figure out how to manage all that money. It is a huge relief. By the way, you never looked lovelier.

Sandra said...

i think you have a better chance at the owl comeing in your window but let us know.

The snowy owl's better company than Wood Pile relatives anyway.

Gill - That British Woman said...

well at least you bought a ticket, so you can say you tried. Liked Sandra's comment!

My woodpile relatives go on for ever and ever. I keep finding new ones and would have to hide from them too. I didn't buy a ticket as I didn't want people digging through my life's history and financial woes and find out Hhow badly I needed to play and win.

Doris said...

Love this!
Didn't buy one so no chance here :)

Michelle said...

We didn't win, but I was prepared as I already have the "Friends Welcome Relative by Appointment" sign above my backdoor :)

We lost too, I wanted a tropical island:)

Connie said...

We matched one number on one of the three tickets we bought. Nothing else. It would be fun, though, wouldn't it, trying to figure out how to spend all that money.

There goes my plan for hitting up blogger buddies for a share of the loot. I'm as bad as the wood pile relatives. I love that term.

Poor but happy with your Princess. I would say you are very rich indeed :)

Anvilcloud said...

Darn ... because I was sure that you would share. :)

Rebecca said...

So it is our good luck you didn't win. Yay me! Poor you...

Lois Evensen said...

Ha! We, too, were so delighted to discover we will be able to work all the way to retirement without having to figure out what to do with all that extra money from the lottery!

Lynn said...

I've never heard so much conversation like "Did you get your ticket?" I like to think I would have doled it out properly and just kept enough to retire on. I'm sure I would have done that.

Ginnie said...

Join the crowd ... or, I should say, all but me. I think everyone I know, including all 3 of my kids, paid their share. I'm sure I would have won but didn't want to hurt their chances.
