Us too, losing ticket went straight to the shredder and the new Corvette brochure back in the drawer.

The most I have won was $100, but that was back in Kansas!!!

It's the oddest thing. Years, ago, DH bought me a few scratch off cards when we were in Virginia. This was my first experience w/ scratch off cards.

First card, won $3. Next card, won $5. Last card, won $20.

Since that day, I have occasionally bought scratch off cards, and never won another penny.

LOL, I haven't gotten any scratch-off cards here, but the best I've done with the Jersey Lottery scratch-offs is $1 or $2, occasionally.

I guess we are just not born lucky that way!!!

Do you remember hearing about that couple in Florida a few years back? They won the state lottery TWO TIMES. I can't exactly remember the story now. Seems they were on the verge of going bankrupt and won the first time . . . oh shoot. I may be dreaming that up.

I can't find their story, but I found this one about a NY family that won twice!

I swear that someone won Mega Millions twice. I can't find it, though.

I haven't seen those guys in a few years (an overnight set during Bonnaroo 2004 with a phenomenal handoff with moe.). I used to be really into those guys in the earlier part of this decade but I fell off just a bit later on. This might spur me to check out some of their more recent shows off of the archive.

himain: Toss some pulled pork this way, will ya?
