We had a dark-skied downpour on Saturday afternoon. I bemoaned to Hick that of course it would happen when I was ready to leave for town. I went to get dressed in my town clothes, and the sun came out!
On the way to town, I saw more dark clouds moving in. I planned my stops so that if I got drenched, it would give me the least embarrassment in the last places I was going.
I parked at the Gas Station Chicken Store for my first stop, to cash in winning scratchers and buy two $5 tickets. When I opened T-Hoe's door, I saw a DIME! Lucky me.
From there I went to Casey's almost next door, and there was a parking spot available! Lucky me.
Next it was the drive-thru mailbox at the dead-mouse-smelling post office. I shoved in my phone bill and electric bill just as rain began to sprinkle onto T-Hoe's windshield. Lucky me.
By the time I got to Country Mart to pick up a pharmacy item for Hick, and of course buy my $3 scratchers, the rain was pelting down. My parking place at the end of the store was open. And when I walked in along the front of the building, the angle of the rain was blocked. Not a drop got on me once I stepped from T-Hoe to the building! Lucky me.
When I came down the driveway upon returning home, I saw a giant rainbow that stretched from Copper Jack's house across the top of our hillbilly mansion to the BARn area. It was too wide to get a picture, but closer to the garage, I was able to get one of a smaller rainbow behind the house.
What a way to lift my already-lifted spirits. Lucky me.
There's a closer view. If you look really close, you can see my little Jack peering over the side of the carport, waiting for me rather than chasing a squirrel. Lucky me.
Once inside, I scratched my lottery tickets, and had a nice winner:
That's $75 on a $5 ticket! Lucky me! I wasn't 20X Lucky, but at least I was 10X + Lucky.
