    Now that I have your attention - are you all ready for this?? Well for years I have been pasting, filling out, licking, returning those Reader's Digest Contests and occasionally got sucked into buying a book or two. Well, it paid off ... I JUST WON A MILLION DOLLARS to be paid out in cash. I am still in shock. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I could ever win - persistence paid off. I will still frequent Wilders cuz this is such a nice place but after I take a nice long vacation. See ya. Peaches

    Aren't we just the lucky ones :) Perhaps we'll finally meet on our world trip ;)

    Here's the announcement i received, to prove it these are the lucky numbers: 3-4-17-28-35-44 (I only anonymised my personal ticket number and serial number, I don't know if I can trust you all, 1 mill is a lot ;):

    Don't know whether I should take this seriously or not Darling Peaches....actually I have been winning anything from $1000,000 to $125,000,000 just about twice a week for the last three months......

    I can't quite figure out tho' how I can keep winning these Lotteries when I haven't entered anyo_O?? SOOoooo being the nice person that I'am I have declined to send Mr. Whatever in Switzerland or Lagos or Norway the money needed to sort out the small problem of sending the money to me, that way I can allow some other poor Sucker...Delete... soul, the chance to win.

    If your win is genuine Peaches [glow=red,2,300]DAMN GOOD LUCK TO [/glow] [glow=red,2,300]YOU[/glow]

    Cochise, :cool:

    But sweetie, this is Readers Digest, I do return the stuff in hopes of everyone else throwing theirs in the trash can and thus increasing my chances of winning ... a matter of deduction my dear Watson!! :D I even purchased a couple of their books!!

    Full details of my win will be announced later. ;)

    I'M falling for it.....Eternal Optimist me.....and anyway, I mean, could you possibly think that someone as pure and innocent as Peaches would tell us all a fib and totally destroy our confidence or belief in anything she said in the future just for an April Fool joke.....NEVER...not Peaches who we all love and believe in implicitly.

    I believe every word she tells me. *puppy*

    Cochise, :cool:
    You may PM me Peaches just in case you need my home addy for anything you might send by Registered mail. But don't tell the others.
