I won $4....for those unfamiliar, in the top ticket, I won the amount on the left, multiplied by two, since I got the double dollar signs!
For my readers with enough fortitude and statistical curiosity, I plan on keeping a record of my winnings and losses from the Lucky 7 scratch-off tickets.
You can read the post below, but the rules are:
1) Winnings are re-invested
2) No more than two tickets are bought per day.
Day One, I bought two dollars worth of tickets, I won $2. I broke even.
Day Two, I traded in (re-invested) the two winning tickets from Day One, and got two more tickets. On one ticket, I won $4. Now, I'm ahead $2.
Isn't this fascinating?
Anyway, the more interesting part of today, if you can believe it, were the Wacky Raft Races from Athens to Catskill.
A friend met me at my place at 8am and we kayaked out into the water to see the hubbub!
It was HILARIOUS!!
Now, it's a simple idea, and there were SO MANY people in the rafts, and people watching, and it was a great way for the residents to use the most valuable resource, the river!
And how much did it cost the town? $1,000 Prize money? Some extra police service?
We're already considering a Trixie raft next year.
OH, the possibilities!
I took a ton of photos. You'll have to wait until tomorrow, I'm exhausted!
