What does luck look like?  Remember that great line from Clint Eastwood in the movie Dirty Harry?  "Do you feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?"

It's a classic reference to the subject of luck.  This is next story is bound to me another.  Here's the scene...

It's your birthday and you are turning 18.  Adulthood is knocking on your door and because you live in Canada, you can legally celebrate with champagne and so you do! Then you decide to treat yourself to a birthday lottery ticket, you know, just to see how lucky your adult life might be.
And  so you drop a modest 4 bucks on a scratch ticket and what do you know--JACKPOT!  Charlie Lagarde hit the grand prize in the Gagnant a Vie lottery which is the Canadian equivalent of $1,000 a week for the rest of her life.  First ticket, 52-grand a year, for life!  Minus taxes of course but that is what you call luck!  Good for her! She has a tremendous advantage of a safety net for a lifetime.  Now she can press her luck, take a few great chances and create an awesome life for herself.  Good...dare I say it...LUCK !  (Yahoo)
