~ Cold out there at 6 a.m. ~
~ Sunny but Cold all Day ~

Oh! Lookee! ... It's Thursday and Joe says it's gonna get Cold again... DARN!
WOW! I GUESS! just checked and it is 13 Degrees... Mein Gott im Himmel! Und das ist kalt!
Clear now at 6 a.m. but then says Cloudy and only heading to 29 for a very low Top!
That Forecast makes me feel like not heading out anywhere for Lottos, we shall just see later

Oh well, BORING! Did my Puzzles again in record Time and I haven't even started my Coffee
Is this gonna be that kind of dull dragging boring and tedious Day? DUH!
And oh My again! Temp dropped to 12 Degrees at 6:30 a.m.

WOW! Clear up to 15 Degrees when I headed out to the Fast Stop and Babee that's COLD!
And I like it when the Weatherman makes a mistake in my direction, he said mostly Cloudy
And I stepped out the door into a mostly Sunny Morning but it wasn't helping much

At the Fast Stop I traded in $30 in Wins added a $10 and bought $40 more
Then back to pop a Glucerna and win back a single tiny $5 Win, where did yesterday's luck go?

And then... I got a 'Good Sale' Coupon in my Email again for poop paper... Hey Hey!
So I headed to the Price Chopper to get that and a couple Bottles of Cran/Grape Juice
And then back down the Hill to the Fast Stop again for more chances to lose
Got my Tickets, headed back and this time did a bit better and won back $25
I think I should report only my winnings instead of losses, might make me feel better?
Actually though, I am way ahead of the Winnings I made for last Month and more left in the Bank too

So, some say "Never say Die"... I say "Never say Quit" and off to the Grab and Go again
This time I cashed in my $25 Win, added $15 and bought $40 more and won $40 back
Even up but the entertainment was worth the Trip

~ Another weird $8 Win! ~ (Times 5) ~

Then not much left of the Day except Dinner and a Movie, what for Dinner? Another Chicken Thigh please
Thawed out and chopped up the Thigh, Mixed up some Corn with Butter and seasoned Onions

Served that up with the Movie and proved to be quite adequate to end another Day

~ Thursday ~ Good Night all over Again ~

~ January ~ Half Gone! ~
~ Another Good Lotto Day ~

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

~ Just the Tomato Plant left ~
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Oh Wow! Looks like I was really 'Wordy' the first half of January this Year!
Had three times the old Text to delete when I stated this second Page of the Month
What was going on anyway? I'll have to read some to see what I did that kept me so bizzy

Well lessee now, I think this is Wednesday, a bizzy Day on Tuesday as I barely remember
Oh yeah, won my Third $100 Lotto for this Month! And PLUS that $500 win, let's keep this Ball rolling please!

And nice Weather to boot for Tuesday, I think that Joe said we have some Cold heading our way now
Well it says 46 Degrees for now, Cloudy and a Top of that 46 Degrees, but then the Temp heads down
Says 19 for the Night ahead and Tomorrow... Only 31 for the High... AHA! Warming back a little Friday

Some early Morning Gardening, that Pepper in Garden Three going no where, also that Lettuce replant
So out they go, leaving the single Tomato plant to see what we shall see from it

~ Kitchen Geranium looking Good ~

And one more catch up shot of the revived Geranium Plant in the Kitchen, looking good again
And raised the Grow Light again on Garden One in the Kitchen, not far to the very top now

And... When Daylight comes... Where to for the Morning Try at good Fortune?
Looks like the only place I didn't win at Tuesday was the Fast Stop... and so...
Off at 8 Ayem to the Fast stop on that cool Damp Cloudy Morning... BAH!
Traded in my $120 in Wins and bought $40 more to try... Gimmee some more WINNERS!
Then to scratch off a $5, $5, $5 and last a $25 Win... HAH! Got my $40 back at least

So, still had $245 in Win Money, can we afford to go try again? Silly question!
Lessee, I didn't try Machine One at the Price Chopper on Tuesday, whatcha think?
Traded in that $40 at the Price Chopper and won back another $75... I think I did OK for the Day.. HUH?

~ Best Win for Wednesday ~

Well that was enough running around for One Day... Time to get in out of that Damp, Dark and Cold
Find something not too boring on the TV and see what goodies I can set out for Dinner

~ Wednesday ~ Win Some Lose Some ~ Still a Winning Day ~

And I believe it is Tuesday... My How Time slips away, halfway through January already!
And waking up to a warmer Morning... Says it is 39 Degrees out there at 6 a.m. and heading to 47
Well Joe was off One Degree, he said a top of 48... But Cloudy... my Forecast says now

So what for Today? Need to take my new Jeans back to the UPS Dropoff for return
Either I ordered the wrong Size or they made a Mistake, Oh well, I ordered again
But first a short run to Platte City and a stop on the way back at the Grab and Go for my Lottos

Forgot to mention the big event of the Afternoon on Monday... Tom installed my new Thermostat
So far I think it is working better, a more overall even Temperature unless it is my Imagination
Anyway, the old one was there for over 20 Years and this one is better looking and easier to reset

Well now, peeking out on the Window Cam, Joe was right again, Babee it's Foggy out there
Hope that clears up a little when I head up the Highway about Nina Klock
And OH! So bored now at 7:30 a.m. Just nuthing to do... well go get cleaned up I guess

And that I did and at 9:15 a.m. Fed the Cat and then off to the UPS store and dropped off my return
And then headed down back the Hiway to the Fast Stop to trade in a $15 Win and buy $40 worth of Losers
And then West on Hiway 45, then up Hiway 435, arrived at 9:45, checked it signed my Paper and headed back South
And back Home to scratch my Losers at 10:30 a.m. And now at 11 a.m. WHAT TO DO?

So, had a few of Pat's Birthday Cookies with some Ho Hum TV and decided to go lose some more money
And still using my Big Win Money from earlier, a couple Hundred left but dwindling now
Then headed to the Price Chopper, got $20 worth of Tickets at the Service Counter
Then over to Machine Two to get $20 More, and Home James! Time to scratch again

This time again all Duds EXCEPT for One nice $50 Win... HAH! Now let's go see Juan
So I took off for the Grab and Go again... Hola Amigo... Traded in my $50 Winner and got $50 more Tickets
Then back at el Ranchito to scratch off only a $20 Winner, Oh well, that was winner Money anyway

Quit then? You kidding?... I saw I needed Gas so I headed to the Minit Mart, filled up and headed inside
Traded in my $20 Winner, got $35 More tries, headed back for the last Scratch of the Day
Then scratched off a $5 win, well a start, Then a $15 Win... Hey Hey... And then a $100 Win! HOORAY!

~ I Think I made a Profit on Tuesday ~

And so, well did I lose or make a profit for the Day? Well my FUN was my Profit and I did OK on Wins
I know I still have $125 of my last $500 Win... And that $120 in new Wins to collect, not bad...

OK... That took me up to 3 p.m. Time to set out some Dinner makins and see if anything on TV is interesting
I have all those Chicken Thighs to start on and still Six Pork Chops in the Freezer
Time to start on that Chicken Today... Excuse me while I set out my Dinner prep

And that I did, back to the TV to finish out another active Day... Let's do it again

~ Tuesday ~ Hey Hey ~ Pretty Good Day! ~
