Was thinking of him this week.
Been working nights out at North Ryde as I often do this week - big network changes on after hours - even slept in the car one night
Duck over to North Ryde RSL to have a break sometimes. Sit down with a coffee, watch some races and have a Keno ticket.
The 9 spot jackpot hadn't been won for a while and early in the week it was at $390k which is very high. So naturally I was taking 9 spot tickets.
Went to check my previous day's ticket on Wednesday night (I think) and noticed it had been won, and it had been won at North Ryde RSL!!!!
I think my hands were shaking a little as I checked my ticket.
Alas, God did not take up my offer to be a missionary if He could deliver on His part of the deal
But what surprised me was that the jackpot went from high $300k's up to the winning jackpot of $606k very quickly.
I remember the syndicate having a crack at a big 10 spot jackpot in the past pushing it up rapidly and eventually winning some absurd amount, and from my recall they were operating out of North Ryde RSL.
Was wondering given the similarities in the modus operandi
if it was them. Might have been sitting right next to the great man and didn't even know it
