How lucky am I?

The last time I wrote, I promised to tell you about how I believe I won a 26 million dollar lottery in Texas.  It’s a long story that needs to be cut down.  In late November or early December 1993, I was driving through Central Texas, heading to El Paso, where I intended to drive across the border into Juarez, Mexico, park my car at … Continue reading How lucky am I?
