When we received a 3 day pass from Universal Studios up in Orlando, right away we decided that we would take today off, and go back to the 2nd park tomorrow... As we get older, you slow down a bit you know... and it is a long day in these parks.
So, today we took life easy... the most important thing (maybe...) that I did this morning, was to walk over to the gas station at our local Walmart, which is right beside us, and purchase a Power Ball Ticket!
With Power Ball though, you have to know, that the prize is paid to you in 30 Annual Installment... so you have to wait for your money. However, you can take a one time payout of about $250,000,000.00! Not too shabby! However if you are a Non-Resident Alien, like Judy and I are, we will be deducted 30% of our winnings right off the top by the IRS. If we were Florida Residents, it would only be 25%...sigh...
One nice thing though... the money raised in Florida on the Power Ball Tickets, is spent on Education! That is why there are so many smart people down here!
Oh ya, in case you are wondering, it cost $2.00 to buy a Power Ball Ticket, and $1.00 to also play the Power Play Portion of the Ticket! My fingers are crossed!
This afternoon I did an oil change on Judy's Burgman, and had to tighen up some loose bolts! She had noticed a small wobble in the steering lately, and turns out the handle bars and become a bit loose, so fixed that for Her in a hurry! All is good again!
On a sad not tonight, we note that there was a major fire up just north of Barrie, Ontario, at the Hitch House. This is probably one of the largest RV Dealers in Ontario. Judy and I have visited this dealership many times, and had our RV serviced there. Apparently a fire started inside an RV that was inside the Showroom of the Dealership. The Showroom is huge, and can hold up to 8 RV's. The whole building, including the Service Department was lost! They had many RV's here, valued at well over $500,000.00 each!
So, we are off to Day 2 at Universal Studios tomorrow! Should be fun!
