I never made a bet on a horse, and never bought a lottery ticket. But
I once won $5 with a lottery ticket.

The ticket was the only lottery ticket I've ever had; it was a
Christmas gift from the mother of one of my students. So I'm $5 ahead
on lotteries--probably much further ahead than most people who have
bought them.

Yet I've known four lottery winners. One of them won it twice and he
was already a millionaire!

Agreed.

I tell folks that I've "won" thousands of dollars by NEVER playing the
lottery.

The only person I know who won a fair amount of money was a friend who
really didn't need it.


My uncle knew someone who won a million dollars and it ruined his life.
He thought the money would last forever and let his business fail.|
The million dollars soon ran out.

Please note that I said "most people," not "all people."

Are you related to Mark Twain, who said "It's easy to stop smoking.

HI Paul, Lotto 649 pays $2.00 if you have the last digit of the Extra
number.

Not related but I do have a story.

When my wife moved in here she agreed to smoke outside.

The -20F winter convinced her to quit!
