Here's some pict of my "campervan" trip on the South Island, NZ. Very reasonable rental prices too (at the time, $70 bucks a day ) ...

You're in good company Alan! I often hear about the odds of winning a big lottery... something akin to the chances of being struck by lightning. I think... NO, the odds are 50/50. You either win or you lose. Guess which one I've managed to HIT

Pam, here is your chance. Tomorrow's Michigan lottery drawing pays out $500 million.

Just remember, we're UHaul buds, right?........um....right?

Sorry, but I just bought a ticket so I fully expect to be $500 million richer Saturday morning!

A BIG lottery win probably wouldn't change our 'lifestyle' (hate that word ) very much. We already do pretty much what we want when we want. Just lately we've been 'on the hook' sittin' a 5mo old great grandaughter weekdays so that's put a crimp in our activities. Should end before long. Actually our idea of 'living pretty good' is small potatoes to lotsa folks. We're perfectly satisfied with our TV & might would move up to a Scamp 16 if money was 'unlimited'. Life's already been pretty good for us so lotsa money would more'n likely just allow us to help 'make it better' for someone else...

Hopeful? Me too. I just heard on ABC news that now every single number combination has been sold. So we know at least one ticket can be more than 1/2 BILLION dollars richer tomorrow night (MegaMillions). I hope there are many winners. Me included

I wish that when it gets above a certain number, the pot gets split in half, or quarters or more. I mean, who needs 500million dollars?

All lotteries are a special tax applicable only to those who are too stupid to do the math....... (Says the guy who has to go check his own tix again this week!)

If you live in Kansas, Illinois or Maryland, or bought a MegaMillions ticket in any of those three states ... check your ticket!

2-4-23-38-46 MB 23

Obviously I wasn't the winner but sure had fun dreaming for a buck!

Kan., Ill., Md. tickets share lottery jackpot
