The only comments our neighbors have made is, "Whoa! Cool!" or "I saw your new Jayco - enjoy it!" However, anyone who does ask gets The Story. (This will be the long version ....)
The Tucson Medical Center holds a mega-raffle every year. Tickets are $100, prizes range from fantabulous
. It's a good cause, so we bought a ticket last year, and a ticket this year. Well, this year, while we were at our tax-lady's office, on 1 April, we got a call from the Raffle People. Promising it was not an April Fool's joke, they told us we'd won.
At first we thought, fine, we've won dinner someplace. But no, we'd won a Jaguar! We don't want a Jag, lovely though it sounds; and a two-seater isn't practical for us anyhow. So we sold it back to the dealer for about 90% of its value, and used the windfall to a) finish a fair amount of work at our son's house, b) get new windows in our house, and c) get our Jayco (with a trade-in). We didn't tell many people till the money was all spent, though.
