A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away...
I spent $2.00 just for fun...
On a lottery ticket
And the same amount I won..
The win... I did forfeit
To buy two more,
Now you know my total score(:
Poetry by me AJP
I am not in the habit of buying Lottery tickets, thank goodness:) but when buying groceries on Saturday I decided to try my luck in memory of my late father who recently had a birthday on August 5th.. If he were alive he would be 103 years old. Coincidentally, when you add up my total score on this card it totals number 8...the same number for the month August and I see the number 5, the number of my father's birthday...I might keep this card for good luck:)
Dad found enjoyment in buying lottery tickets before his stroke and more often than not, he was lucky... (Of course he never told you his losses:) But I am sure he came out ahead...
He loved anything and everything about baseball and I know he would have bought a baseball lottery ticket such as I bought ..However, after his stroke in 2002 all of his past hobbies such as wood carving and interests departed from his memory, including baseball, and lottery tickets. His whole personality changed and I miss him, the way he was before his stroke..The good memories of him I will always keep and cast away what could not be helped.
It was more difficult to shoot this picture than I realized...This is the exposure what I used and I shot this outside with the little ticket propped against the door where it was shady..
