Virginia is for multiple winners

Doug Rosen is a regular guy who has been around the block a few times. He has his own business. He was feeling lucky a while back and had been playing the year of his birth 1958, in the pick 4 lottery tickets. One day he felt really, really lucky and bought 20 tickets with the same number again when he stopped at the 7-11 on his way home from work. “I could just feel it,” he told Lottery officials as he claimed his prize. “I knew I was going to hit!” It was a good feeling because all 20 of his tickets won $5000 each. So he won $100,000 that day. That was great, but last year the Virginia lottery paid Debra Brown a prize of $150,000 when she won on 30 Pick 4’s with the same 1031 number. I guess you can’t win if you don’t play.

 

Luck in “Action?”

The fortune cookie I got with my Chinese food today was weird…
It said, ”FREE ME FROM THIS FACTORY
Lucky Numbers 23.5° N, 121.0° E”

When you need to knock on wood is when you realize that the world is composed of vinyl, naugahyde and aluminum.

I get enough exercise just pushing my luck.
