I don't purchase lottery tickets anymore. Why? You may ask. Well, I really don't want to win. I love the life I am living, I love where I am living, and I am quite comfortable, so why would I want to mess all that up by winning the lottery. I have enough to eat (sometimes more than enough), a roof over my head, a nice motor home sitting out in the drive way in case we want to take a trip, an old tube type color TV (but I mostly watch the old black and white shows, especially the old westerns), etc. I have a loving wife, two dogs that keep me smiling, and my son and his family live on the back of my property. So you see, I can't think of anything that I would want that would make me happier than I am right now.
I definitely feel blessed. I guess the only problem with us and our dogs is that we are getting old. I was born back during World War Two, have seen a lot and have done a lot, and don't really want anything more than what we now have. So, why buy a lottery ticket? If I won, I would have to put up with a lot of hassle that I really don't need. So, that is why I no longer purchase lottery tickets.
