Well, first off, most people probably don’t know what “havingness” means, since it is an invented word. It refers to a person’s willingness to have things – not desire, but ability.
After that post I wrote about not sleeping, my good friend Anita and I traded a few emails trying to brainstorm a solution to my trouble. I told her that, if all else failed, August was coming soon and historically it is the hottest and driest month of the year around here. Or, perhaps the PCH Prize Patrol would ring our new doorbell on August 31 – if they do, I would answer the door.
Yesterday was yet another very wet day. The storms moved into the area around 4:30 AM, and it rained most of the morning. Naturally, our mail was delivered in the rain. What was funny, though, is that there was an envelope from PCH – clearly marked on the outside, “You’re A Winner – Prize Check Enclosed”.
The envelope was so wet that it pretty much disintegrated when I looked at it. Still, with care and the acquired skill of opening soaked envelopes, I managed to get it open without destroying the contents. Yes, it was NOT a joke. We did win a PCH prize.
Well, I can have that. The check was mailed to our credit union for deposit yesterday. Now we need to work on havingness to get to that point of being able to “have” a $5,000/week income for life. The prize is awarded at the end of this month. *grin*
