  • A little story that I need to tell

    G'day All,
    I need to tell this story, it's true and happened to me last week. My wife and I had appointments with our doctor, her for treatment for Carpal tunnel, and me to get the results of some tests.....turns out that that I appear to have suffered a heart attack in the past, and have now developed Angina and arrangements have been made to have it attended to. Now, while waiting for my wife, I dug out a largeish chip from another carving, and whittled the little lady you can sorta see standing on a Canadian 1 cent coin.....she's 5/8 of an inch high and my camera isn't good enough to photograph that size.........Now, later that same day, we were at our usual shopping mall and I decided to ask the Lotto agent to check my registration card to see if the ticket I bought last month had won anything....The girl fed my info into the computer and then went very quiet....she whispered that the ticket had won us $1402:00......not a fortune.....but the biggest win we'd ever had as well as giving a delightful tickle to the hip pocket.......Needles to say, my wife now carries that ugly little angel everywhere she goes,<grin> I thank you for reading my tale, and I wish each and every one of you, the happiest of Christmases and a very pleasant, safe, and prosperous New Year....

    That's a great story thanks for sharing.and a wonderful carving(incredible how small it is)

    $1402 would certainly come in handy this time of the year.

    good luck with the health problems .Hope all goes well for you.

    and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

      Great story, and I'd chain that little carving to my neck!!
      I wish you complete success as I do your wife. Health is the center of our universe and somehow we don't seem to value it as much when we're young.
      Merry Christmas, John.

                Great things happen to good people, keep that little angel with you during you up coming heart/angina treatment. Thanks for a heart warming story. As for you Eddy, don't get any ideas ha-ha.

                        Thanks all you lovely people for your kind responses to my little tale......Our day didn't start out to be the best, but that little win certainly went a long way to brighten it up for us...thanks again.

                        Eddy, AUD$1402 translates as US$1216:73....still worth collecting tho' <grin>
