I have never taken much stock in luck and I never buy Lottery tickets. I can't speak for my bride though.
Yep. A few weeks ago she purchased a Scratch-Off and she actually won some money. We spent quite awhile pondering our options and have decided on the following.
Though her winnings aren't overly substantial, they will pay for Health Insurance premiums for the next several years. We have decided that my pension combined with our savings will support us very comfortably and she will pay for our Health Insurance from her winnings.
On Monday April 2nd, we're launching our first enterprise. We're calling it Monroe County Bicycle Guides. I'll do the riding and guiding and she will provide cold refreshments at rest stops along the routes if desired. I will keep enough tools and spare parts in my B.O.B. trailer to handle most roadside repairs. I've been a lifelong student of local History and I hope to provide enjoyable scenic rides with just a bit of local history and folk lore mixed in. I've been toying with this idea for a long time and I'm anxious to get started. Advertising will be through area Chambers of Commerce, a Web Site, and area bicycle shops. So it's bye bye Kodak and hello open road!!
Oh yeah, I'm now a firm believer in the New York Lottery phrase "A dollar and a dream".
I'll be sure to provide the links once I get them set up.
