Week 11: Lucky
Do you have an ancestor who was lucky at something? Lucky to be alive? Lucky at cards? Lucky in love? Maybe you have an ancestor with a name that reminds you of luck or fortune. There’s always “luck of the Irish.” Maybe you have a story of how luck played a role in finding an ancestor. Write about that this week.
My Paternal Family Line is the Green’s. I think they may have thought that they had the luck of the Irish streak in them. My Grandmother loved a good game of BINGO, and would play Tatts/Lotto and the scratchies every week. With her often coming home with a win. My Dad loved to go to the Casino.
Growing up the family couldn’t wait until I turned 18 to take me to Burswood. Me on the other hand didn’t get the gene at all. I don’t play Lotto, I don’t go to Bingo or the Casino, or play the pokies. I dont even enter raffles or competitions. The closest I get is going to the Crown Casino and seeing the special exhibitions on there.
I consider myself to be lucky in love, when I met Jack, I hit the love Jackpot.
