A long-running personal blog shared by two authors with completely different approaches to life. And a lot of large, beautiful photographs of dogs and nature and places we've traveled to. Rich in commentary and irreverant in style. 


We started blogging a long time ago. Our work hours never aligned with recommended psychotherapists and we needed to get our thoughts out. We are great friends, total opposites and long-time housemates. This was a way to communicate. With each other. With strangers. With consumer marketers. With sub-par meteorologists. With distant friends who wanted to see pictures of stuff we were up to.

This is the place. Our bucket of thoughts to share. You are welcome. 
(We realize that most of you are here for the dog pictures.)

You go... no, you go.. no, no, you go...


Last month, an 84 year old woman won the largest jackpot in Powerball history. She came forward to claim the prize last week.  The twist to her story that has had me pondering since the story broke is:

"While in line at Publix, another lottery player was kind enough to let me go ahead of them in line to purchase the winning Quick Pick ticket," Mackenzie said in the statement.

I fully admit that I would NEVER (NEVER EVER) let anybody cut in line or would I accept it.  I know it’s against the logic of “if it was meant to be mine, it doesn’t matter where I am because it would find me” and there is no doubt that when it comes to these situations, superstition wins over logic EVERY SINGLE time.  For example, when buying a Powerball ticket, the cashier accidentally punches up a MegaMillions instead of Powerball, I’ll buy it because you never know.  But don’t you? You don't. :-D

If you were the woman, what do you do?  Do you search out the person? What would you give the person?  Do you even admit to the story that you cut in line and essentially stole $600 Million?

If you were that person who let her cut in line, would you think you would remember doing it?  Do you think that she should seek you out and give you something?  A million, 10 Million, 100 Million, half?? 

Would you ever let somebody cut in line while buying lottery tickets?

I have no point besides that I think about the lottery a lot and ponder what I would do if I won.
