Is anybody out there a photographer? Or a pet lover? Or somebody who can take a good photo of your pet? If so, you might want to check out the Missouri Lottery 2014 Calendar Photo Contest. You could win $500 in real money, or $100 worth of Scratchers tickets. Plus, you get a photo credit in the calendar. And your pet will be famous! Or at least hanging on gambers' walls.
I told the #1 son that he should enter. He said, "Huh." Of course, he was at his girlfriend's house when I called him, after going on a spending spree at Supermarket of Shoes with my debit card, so perhaps his focus was not on a lottery calendar at the time.
Alas, gone are the days when I could flatter #1 into taking pet pictures for me, then send them in and claim the prize for myself. Now that he's 18, he can enter his own photo contests, and scratch his own Scratchers. Oh, how I mourn the loss of innocence.
And my chance for a prize.
