SENIORS: THE RAINBOW’S END DIDN’T STOP AT OUR DOOR

Apr 4th, 2012 | By | Category: Senior Moments Blog

If no one comes forward, will my lottery tickets have any more value than they do now? The rainbow clearly ended at another’s door. It may even be that three persons hold the treasure in their hands and have not yet come forward. Or, having bought tickets, they just haven’t got around to checking them over. Can you imagine?

All other issues nothwithstanding, it is clear that I didn’t win and, if history is any indicator, I won’t. Some years ago I bought a handful of tickets with some regularity. Never winning, except a dollar or two here and there, I finally convinced myself that the odds really were against me. One of our relatives called suggesting we share in buying some tickets this time around. You know, “If you don’t play, you can’t win” strategy. We played. We still didn’t win. None of the states where the alleged winner(s) is/are supposed to live even is close to us. The rainbow did not show its true colors anywhere near us.
