Saturday Night Open Thread
There were three winners of the MegaMillions grand prize. Two people in Colorado won substantial amounts..
The million dollar Colorado winner bought his/her ticket at the same 7/11 I bought mine at.
The $1 million winner bought a ticket at the 7-Eleven at 4040 E. 8th Ave. in Denver and the $250,000 winner bought a ticket at the 7-Eleven at 6802 S. Yosemite St. in Centennial.
So, it really could have been me -- but it wasn't. [More.....]
I have a friend from Europe I haven't seen in 30 years visiting in a few days. Her son is looking at colleges here. I decided to go hunt for old pictures of us, and went to a moving company where I have had stuff in a giant storage crate since the 80's. I haven't gone out to see what's there in more than 15 years.
The moving company had one of its movers unseal the giant crate. There must have been 50 boxes, at least. Since all I wanted were boxes of photographs, I still have no idea what else is there. I left with two giant suitcases filled with loose photos and five moving cartons that are marked "photos."
Six hours later, I'm still just making my way through the second suitcase. What an amazing journey through time. Everything from the TL kid's ultrasound pictures, hundreds of polaroids of him as an newborn and infant, every friend and relative, every house I've lived in, every country I've traveled to, every special occasion (from my "sweet sixteen" party to early Rolling Stones concerts) and so much more are in these photos.
I knew I took a lot of photos, but had no idea I took thousands. I'm not sure when I'll come up for air to get back to the present and the news.
So in the meantime, here's an open thread, all topics welcome. How are you spending the weekend?
