Today’s quote comes from my father. In the all the years I knew my dad he would have a bet on the races each Saturday and each week buy a series of lottery tickets.

On a Saturday afternoon, I would find him with a pile of betting tickets next to him. I’d ask him how his afternoon had gone and he’d look at his pile of unsuccessful tickets and say: “It’s a hard game.”

He applied the same philosophy to the lottery. To me, his saying symbolised his life. Brought up in the depression years, life was tough, and in many ways, it remained that way though he did marvel at the usefulness of his microwave oven.

Tomorrow as a treat, a quote from my mum.

As for nominating anyone/someone, I think if you are so moved to participate, then please do so.
