Today the RSL (hereafter referred to as the rissole - for my US readers that's the Returned Services League or local Veterans' Club), had a lunch gathering. I left work early for lunch and attended the rissole do. There are some things going on connected with Ocean, Sky & Khaki because the local RSL is working with one of the local supermarkets (IGA) to be a collection point for goods to send in care packages to our troops serving overseas.
Anyhoo, it was a free BBQ lunch. Steak, snags (sausages), steakettes ("meat" somehow salted and spiced and not too chewy), some different salads, potato bake, jacket spuds cooked int their jackets with garlic and butter, mmmmm. Then there was dessert. Baked custard, fruit salad, and a yummy no-grog trifle (I've only recently - in the last 14 years - discovered I quite like trifle!).
Okay, back to the story. There was a raffle, $5 for three tickets. I bought 3 tickets. They drew the raffle, and my tickets were in my wallet. I grabbed the tickets, slowly as I never win anything, because noone came forward. My red 28 was the winner! Hurrah! I won a $30 voucher for the local butcher. That's gonna be handy.
There's a $20M lotto draw on Tuesday, but I think I may have used up my luck today. *sigh*
PS: I left my yoghurt on the bench this morning. Good thing I was well fed at lunchtime.
