For the blog today, here’s two news quickies that you might have missed:
First is the lottery lawsuit among family. The Urquhart family could not believe their eyes. No difficulties for the rest of their lives. The thinking of winners of a $51 million MEGA Millions lottery jackpot.
Unfortunately, it appears that Captain Greed is now steering the family ship. The mom is suing the son, claiming fraud and elder abuse. The suit claims that he swindled her out of her winnings, that belong to her and her husband; then put the money in a checking account that they have no access to; and began to spend their money.
She claims that he has purchased four houses, bought ten cars and made cash gifts of hundreds of thousands of dollars. The son claims that he had given the mother money to purchase the tickets for the last several years. So, it reminds us that winning the lottery is not, or something like that. As they say, ” a million here, a million there and pretty soon you’re talking Elvis money”.
This next story is also family bad news. It might remind you of the cable ads that are currently running, because this is how they might put it:
When you drink alcohol, it makes you drink more. When you drink more, you pass out. When you pass out, your 3-year-old child walks outside.
When your child walks outside, your dog thinks it’s play time. When your dog thinks it’s playtime, he begins to pull your child’s clothing off. When your child’s clothing is pulled off, he begins to scream. When he screams, the neighbor calls 911. When the neighbor calls 911, the police find your child out back with his shirt off and the dog gnawing on the pants. When the police find… (I could keep this up all day)
It would end with some like: Don’t drink. Don’t drink at 10 in the morning. Don’t drink and pass out with a 3 and 5 year old in the house.
The news attachment does tell us that the child was not hurt. It was obvious that the family dog thought he was playing. The mother has now been charged with two child endangerment charges. I guess, like the one cable advertisement, a complete ending could also include, “Don’t lose all your money in Vegas and sell your hair to a hair shop”.
If you haven’t seen any of these ads, it won’t mean that much. They all make me laugh. This Cleveland woman… not funny. Just sad for the kids.
For pic o’ day, I went back to dogs having fun:
