I will share. I am gonna give my papergirl a shitload. She gave Mum and I a note about leaving her route as of yesterday because she got a part time job. She won $250 partly because I praised her up to her boss when I called to get a meassage to her to knock on my door so I could give her Xmas cards (with tips) from Mum and me. After we got the note, I put a note in the mailbox asking her to knock on my door... wanted to give her one last card of thanks.
She did. The card contained a sum of money and a serious thank you. What she gave us was FAR MORE... she said that because of us, she had the confidence to apply for a part time job and got it!
I know that doesn't sound like much but it's a big deal to me and to Mum as well as her. 6AM and slogging through snow and rain and wind for little pay with bad arthritis. If there is a better reason for me to win the lotto, I'd like to hear it.
Of course, I'll send Chongo a large cheque too. Too bad he won't be able to cash it because he doesn't exist either.
The fookin moon still can't be seen and I can't sleep. Ain't that a bitch?
