Now who's wearing the pants, baby!

Babble on.

Well, if the winning ticket isn't the one sitting folded in my wallet, I guess it might as well go to these deserving souls:

The eight women, who are civilian staff members at Canadian Forces Base Petawawa in eastern Ontario, bought the ticket that had the winning numbers for Friday's Super 7 lottery.

The jackpot divides to about $650,000 for each of them.

***

All eight wore T-shirts emblazoned with yellow ribbons signalling support for the soldiers.

The women, who range in age from 24 to 55, work for the Normandy Officers Mess and learned of their good fortune on Saturday after one of them looked up the numbers on the internet.

All but one of the women is a military spouse and two of their husbands are among the more than 2,000 Canadians now serving in Afghanistan.

The women said their husbands didn't believe them at first when they told them of the win on the telephone.


Hoo-ahh, ladies. Six hundred and fifty K goes a long, long way in Pet.

Babble off.

Thats probably the only group I don't mind taking(or winning) my retirement plan.

I'm glad they won it. Them, and the Camrose crew earlier (?this year? last year?).

That'll get you as far as Pembroke at least.
