My husband. I was in love with him for years before he noticed me. I converted to Catholicism in a barter with the Sacred Heart- If my sweet man miraculously loved me, I'd do RCIA and the whole shebang. So it was two wins.

My other win is our daughter. They told me I couldn't have kids.

And finally, I live in Idaho, which is a huge win.

Is your cat normally cranky? Mine are incredibly chill--I can pick burrs out of their fluff without once getting mauled.


My cat loves being brushed. I call it her massage. She sticks her bum up , "rub my back near my tail more". My other cat isn't into it as much but doesn't care if I try it on him.

Here's a pic of her freshly brushed wanting more


I guess my biggest win was having well behaved cats! Had some real beggars along the way

Aside from that, my biggest win might be my home. I do love my home and wake up each day being grateful for it. Also "won it" in the divorce. Well I worked my ass off maintaining it. He didn't lift a finger.

Incredible luck! And super generous giving away much of that cash!

I can only give you stars, but you got some good karma for sure.


"New-found Fortune is never owned, only borrowed and spread among those who need."

I never give to receive, and unexpected monies seem larger when shared with those I hold dear. Luck with the jackpots was a trip, but I was rich before when I think of my wife, kids and family. Thanks for the nod Trachel--Cheers!

Had to congratulate you on the meet and race! I ran track in high school too, also a sprinter. I ran the third leg on the 4x400. It was my favorite spot because usually other teams put their weakest runner there, and I got to pass so many of them! Made me feel like a faster runner than I was haha.

Now my greatest accomplishment....graduating college the same time my wife did and got an amazing job right away! And also hearing from my parents and grandparents that we are setting our lives up so well and they are proud of us!

Also, I like my in-laws. How many of you can say that!

I too have to say the biggest win of my life was finding my wife. Just in case she reads this

Ok, if you're racing bikes, you've got way bigger stones than I'll ever have.

Much respect--and here's wishing you nothing but luck in the future.

Glad to hear it--that's just another reason to never believe a doctor's prognosis. If you don't like what you hear, manifest a different reality.

And I've gotta ask: Is Idaho awesome? I've never been.

Cover your bases during the day, and you might end up having a really enjoyable night. Lol

My biggest win bar none, was being able to retire when I was 62.

I have a few other things I consider big wins over the years, but this is the pinnacle, the big prize, hitting the jackpot.

Coming from someone who's only 35, can I ask how you managed it?

I'd like early retirement too!

Another thread dealing with/about egos.

"Here's mine, show me yours."

I wonder if some of the subtle hints from posters hit bottom with the OP?

Love it or hate it, at least I spent my energy creating something for people to enjoy!

I genuinely hope something nice happens to you today. You sound like you need it.

I nicknamed her "Pissy Missy" for good reason.



I'm not the only one who has a cat with that nickname? We call ours Missy Pissy.
