and the WINNER IS...

 By Nancy Grayson

I won a shiny red top -of -the- line Vespa at a local Italian restaurant which I frequent. The Vespa had been in the window for about 6 months and there was a jar into which everyone who bought something- a meal or a bottle of olive oil- could put a bill with their name and phone number.

Nancy and members of the Vespa Club
I got a call on Aug 26, two days after my 74th birthday, that I was the winner and I was invited to the restaurant's 25th anniversary dinner the next night. I went and had a ball! I was treated like a celebrity and there were some members of the Montreall Vespa Club there who were giving me advice about driving a Vespa in Montreal traffic (AS IF!).

Talk about life being full of surprises, it ain't over til it's over, and all that! Now I am trying to sell it and use the money for a trip (to Italy?)!…

Terrific story, Nancy. Frankly, it looks like it would be a lot of fun.  But NOT in Montreal traffic! -Ed
