Striking it Rich

Lynn went to Istanbul recently. She did so well there that we're both going back next week. Then we realized that what she brought home was something less than the proverbial pot of gold.

When she got back she handed me a note for 1,000,000 old Turkish Lira. She hit the jackpot! A million of anything is something, right? Not right.
