We don’t spend any money on sports. That is I do not golf, tennis, shoot pool, hunt (anymore), don’t own a boat, four wheeler, nor a horse. I have never bought a bingo card.(I always wonder how folks keep track of 4-8 cards during one game at the RV parks where they play for money or prizes) I no longer smoke, so at 2 packs a day I am saving what, $35 a week?
I have friends who would never buy a lottery ticket, THAT IS GAMBLING. My Sherry will not buy one. I have no problem with anyone’s conscience as long as they don’t feel they need to decide for me.
Now, I am a story teller. I have written four novels, to do that you must be a day dreamer. I buy a lottery ticket fairly often. There are times I dream of what I would do with the money if I hit ‘the billion in one’ chance or what ever it is.
Hey, I am not ignorant to the fact I have a better chance of being hit by lightening, than winning. Well since I have been hit by lightening once, I could win, right?
Being deaf, I probably dream more than many folk. There are times on a walk alone, I dream. On some of our trips and the traffic is light (since I cannot converse) I dream. I get a real kick of dreaming of ensuring a good life for our family then helping folk or causes I believe in.
Now in my humble opinion, that is not a waste of a dollar or even ten. I get ideas for blog entries, book plots while day dreaming. I was one of those boys who lay in the grass feeling a kite tugging on the string and while watching the clouds I saw animals and other forms in the sky. I day dreamed way back then in 1952 of traveling the world and fighting for causes that would free the world, I was the ultimate mercenary.
So I will continue to buy the lottery ticket. I may never win more than the $78 I won in the Arizona Lottery, but I will keep on trying and day dreaming, because DREAMS have no price.
Thanks for stopping by. If you do not dream, do yourself a favor and dream POSITIVE!
I dreamed of the perfect life and things were going well. I dreamed of the perfect family, I thought WE had it, but then some things went ‘sideways’. But HEY I still dream of a great family in the end, maybe not perfect, but a great one.
HOWEVER, I did get the perfect lady. Don’t you love it when a dream comes true!<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<^>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
I dreamed of this:
I got this:
