Power Ball 700 Million Jackpot!
Okay folks, you're hearing it here first. Save your money, I just brought the winning Powerball ticket. Actually, I bought two Powerball tickets, one for Pat. Pat always buys me a Princess Margaret ticket. Just paying back folks.
The Powerball jackpot
is estimated to be 700 million dollars. The drawing is this Saturday, one day before I leave for California. The question is, if I win do I cancel my trip to California? Hell no!
So what will I do with my millions when I win? Well, you know I will give a lot of it away. And not recklessly either. I'll bring in all my years of experience in working in a bank trust department (trust operations). I'll set up trusts for all my family so they never have to worry about financial concerns the rest of their lives. And I'll also do many random Acts of Kindness. Remember the old 50's TV show, "The Millionaire"?
Remember the name of the millionaire? His name was John Beresfed Tipton. What's my last name? You got it! What a wonderful way to play out the last act of my life, making people happy, anonymously. And anonymously I will do it too folks. So if you never hear from me again, you can assume I won the lottery.
Seriously though folks, all my life I knew something big was going to happen for me. Coming from very low circumstances (so poor we didn't even wear shoes in the summertime, shoes were only for school) I have achieved everything I every worked for wished for. I have a wonderful home, loving husband, wonderful friends including my Special Friend Pat, and reasonably good health for 74 year old gay man.
But wouldn't that just be the icing on the cake though folks if I won the lottery? Of course I probably won't win but you know folks, isn't it wonderful to dream?
