the ever popular

‘steak ala steak’ and ‘fun noodles’

were options on the bingo card menu

what’s not to love?

the magic collapsable cup and the fairies

that won them over.

both are helpful in emergencies

and

you never know when you will need them.

brilliant choices.

kinders watch

to see when the birds will come

to eat the treats

they’ve made for them

and hung up high in the trees

so they don’t go hungry in the winter’s snow. 

“be grateful for luck. pay the thunder no mind – listen to the birds. and don’t hate nobody.

Man forgets glasses, buys winning lottery ticket

Fairfield, Conn. — A man in southwestern Connecticut who mistakenly bought the wrong lottery ticket is $30,000 wealthier.

Bob Sabo, of Easton, says he didn’t want to wait in line to buy a lottery ticket at the Super Stop & Shop in Fairfield, so he decided to buy a ticket from a lottery vending machine — something he had previously never done.

Sabo says he meant to buy two $20 tickets, but says *he didn’t have his glasses on and instead bought a $30 ticket. When he got home, he discovered the ticket was a winner.

*(and he is clearly my kindred spirit)
