Default Saturday Night Powerball Fever Louisiana Style

I think Melody and I need to pool our funds and start purchasing lottery tickets last Saturday night someone from the suburbs of New Orleans won the powerball jackpot of 97.5 million...last night, someone from the suburbs of Baton Rouge hit for 1 million

with a sound investment plan on either jackpot, that would be alot of cruises for the rest of our lives for each of us

it will be interesting when the winners come forward..multi state lottery folks claim it is very rare that major jackpots are hit back to back in the same state, but I bet that next saturday night more people will play in Louisiana hoping for lightning to strike 3 times in a row

We don't have Powerball here in Florida but I always feel better when nobody has won lotto and the jackpot gets bigger....if I didn't win at least I can dream big for next week.
Angela Z. , who's a little tired of all this dreaming and would rather be winning!

Venice,

Oregon has it's own lottery, and also participates in PowerBall, the mult-state lottery.

Of course, you realize that your chances of being struck by lightning on the way to the store, vastly exceed those of winning!

Mean Dean..I realize that ,but the excitement at work (which is less then a mile from where the winning 95M ticket was sold) was incredible the morning after

I see playing the lottery as a good exercise in positive thinking and motivation for my daily 5 mile walk..I pick up enough change from the ground to be able to buy a quick pick every wednesday and saturday

so my friend, we have to figure out a lottery combination featuring key numbers aroud our mutual girlfriend JT 8) 8) 8)

Mean Dean....I'll combine your figures with her birthday and I'll play a Powerball ticket..I'll send her an e-mail to advise her if we win we will contribute 10% of our winnings to her favorite charity providing that she join us (and leave her husband at home) on the Playboy Jazz Cruise in our Penthouse Suite..You need to contact her to verify your figures first

I WILL be hitting the Florida Lottery soon. There, I said it, so it has to be true!
Venice, when I hit the lottery, I'll be joining you on that Jazz cruise. Yes, the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) will be coming along. (After all, I'm there for the music. ) I'll even pay for you and your partner to join us!

Ken

Ken..my new best friend of course I will reciprocate WHEN I win the Louisiana Lottery and I will invite our buddies Melody and Luanne to join you and the lovely Mrs Jones , along with Mean Dean and his lovely bride and my lady guest and all the women can get a 7 day temporary "bunny tattoo" prior to the cruise so that they can show off on formal night when they take their picture with Hugh Hefner ...

at night we will all be attending the great jazz concerts and midnight all star jam sessions, but during the day at sea, we men will attend the seminars to discuss the articles that are published in the Jan 09 Playboy magazine
