It's My Friday

This week today is my Friday. I took off work tomorrow and the following Monday and my wife and I will celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary with a little trip to Memphis, Tennessee. Our anniversary is officially on the 19th. It's only about 5 hours away, so it won't be a terribly long drive. My wife and I have been many places, but Memphis is not one of them. One of the popular attractions there is of course Graceland, Elvis Presley's house. So that should be cool. We'll also visit where Martin Luther King was assassinated and the Civil Rights Museum there. Lots to do, but we're mostly packed thanks to the wife who likes to get things done beforehand, unlike me. By the way, if anyone wanted to know, the Lucky Day Lotto has still not been won. It's now $1.45 million. Man, what an anniversary that would be if we won the darn thing.

@lnillerman it is not easy to win money at the casino,a strategy is required but you have more chances of winning than then ones you have with the lotery

@porwest How I wish I won in the lottery too. My problem is I have never ever bet in any gambling or game of chance. So how could I win

Indeed. Last year's anniversary, for no particular reason, was kind of a dud even if my wife disagrees with that. This year should be much better.

Unfortunately we were not the lucky winners. But yes, indeed. Would have been awesome. Ah heck, so long as we have each other, who the heck needs all that money. Tsk, tsk.
