You will not believe my luck!
I received not one, but two letters in my inbox today from European lotteries.
How did this happen?
I don't remember playing any European lotto.
I haven't even been to Europe in the last 20 years.
But they found ME!
I am the winner.
A big one at that.
The first letter says that I have won 1,000000.00 GBP, pound sterling.
I have no idea what a 1, followed by 6 zero's is.
They only used one comma.
But hey, that is a lot of zero's...it must be a lot of money.
I also have no idea what GBP, pound sterling is either.
It could mean Great Britain Pounds.
That would be great.
It could also be Ground Black Pepper.
Um...not. so . great.
It has the name of the Barrister on it.
That makes it official.
I am going to think positive.
Here is the first letter.
What do you think?

I like how Mrs. Thompson signed her name and put a period after it.
The second letter I received was from the Europe Awards.
This letter was equally exciting.
I am already planning what I am going to buy with all my winnings.
This was a satellite software email lottery.
I use email a lot.
It was only a matter of time before they found me.
Find me they did.
I won ONE MILLION EURO.
They used all CAPS.
That means they are serious.
This letter was even signed by the President.

Mr Hiroshema Nikon
I have just emailed Barrister Kel Moye and President Hiroshema Nikon.
I have let them know of my excitement.
I gave them all the information they needed.
Like mailing address, phone number, sex, and occupation.
I also included ALL other pertinent information like my social security number, my banks routing number, my checking and savings account numbers, my blood type and a copy of my will.
The little security symbol was on the screen, so I am sure I had a safe connection.
You have to be careful who you give all this information to.
I am sure Barrister Moye and President Nikon are trustworthy individuals.
You just don't get titles like that for nothing.
I gave them my children's social security numbers too.
I wanted some of the money to be put in their names so they will be well taken care of.
A mama has to look after her babies.
I must go now.
I have an appointment with a Realtor.
She found me a fabulous Oceanfront lot in Arizona.
I want to be the first to bid on it.
