Talk To The Hand

     Did you ever wonder what you would, or wouldn’t do, if or when you hit the lottery or have some other type of good fortune befall you? I have,,, lots of times and I think I have devised the perfect course of action for dealing with my new-found wealth. So, when you hear of my sudden influx of cash and/or other negotiables, please read and heed the following bit of information.

     Sunday humor(or not) for you.



 If I ever get rich,

would I get the itch,

to hoard it,

or give some away ?


 But, I’ll say this to you,

and swear, that it’s true,

don’t bother to call tomorrow,

if you couldn’t bother, to call yesterday.


 And, no relatives anew,

or friends, save a few,

should trouble, to knock,

on my door.


 Don’t expect, more of me,

than, just what you see,

today, when now,

I am poor.


 I, will decide,

just who’s on my side,

and who,will share,

in my wealth.


 So, spare me your tears,

and all of your fears,

about, the state,

of your health.


 Or, your children, need shoes,

and of course, how the blues,

have entered, and enveloped,

your life.


 I have charity, in mind,

and, on my own, I will find,

and all the others,

must deal, with my wife!

    Bwahaha, this is hilarious, Jack! Just exactly what I thought too… but I will never win a jackpot because I never take a ticket.

    • My late aunt used to say, “you can’t pick it up if you don’t put it down”.. But you are far better off by not playing, in the long run Denise. Still for a dream I’ll put a dollar down here and there. Thanks for the bwahaha, loved it.


  3. My children have radar. Every time I hit the slots or the numbers for 2 or 3 K they call they next day about needing bucks for this or that. It is astonishing.
