    First off I'm not looking for sympathy by any means. I'm just doing what I feel any father/parent would for there kids........Over the last 3 years I have been working 40hrs+ a week at my regular job and as much part time work as I could muster up to pay for my oldest child (my son) to go through a technical collage program that he wanted to attend....... I have done without and I have went to work when I really did not want to..... I just felt that it is what I'm suppose to do for both of them......Well, I finally paid the last payment for his collage last month he could walk across that stage debit free..... on May 22 !!![​IMG]

    So my story starts Saturday 4/18/15..... My mom and I were entered in a contest for a local radio station that was giving away a new truck......My mom was entered in in about 2 months ago. So I decided that I was going to take her I needed to get a chance at it so it would make it worth the ride..... Well I was able to get in and get a chance at it myself......

    The drawing was Saterday and it

    So the drawing was about an 1 1/2 hours away from my house.... .So we took off early Saturday morning, my plan was to just have some time to spend with my mom and have a good day......I NEVER expected to.......  

    Well they say a picture is worth a thousand words !!!!! So here are the results of our day out......


    I WON A 2015 5.7L V8 Fully Loaded Dodge Ram !!!!! Words can not explain how happy I am !!!

    I have never owned a new vehicle !!! or one less than 15 years old .......It is still unreal !!!! That is a day with my mom I will never forget  ! ! ! !

    Congrats on the new truck! Nice thing you did for the child as well. I remember the good old days of full time work and full time school it wasn't much fun and I still had some debt to boot. Hopefully your kids understand what you were able to do for them.Thumbs Up

    I'm a big believer in karma-good things happen to good people! You've proven that true once again. We teach our kids to be good parents by being good parents-we just do what we know is right. Congrats on the new truck, you certainly have earned it. Karma can be good and karma can be a bitch-I'd rather stay on its good side! Enjoy the truck, David.

    Sorry, I have had a pretty busy few weeks :102:.....

    1st I won the truck!!!! :yahoo:,

    2nd the plumbing decided that it did not want to stay in the kids toilet and flooded the house 2 weeks ago...:help:... After my son and I chased the clog all the way to the street. We called the sewage dept and they determined it was their problem and fixed it for me...:sausage:...

    3rd, Monday we had a BAD rain/mini tornado in Denham Springs that :yahoo: knock a tree down on the new addition of the house and my poor old truck..:hissyfit:....Oh, and we were without power for 3 days.....but you know what, the old truck survived and the house can be fixed......Thumbs Up

    @mummel, :th_crybaby2: Yes, I had to pay tax, title and licenses on the spot!!!!:icon_eek: $3,500.00 !!!!! And I found out in Louisiana we also have a luxury tax that will be assesses at the end on the year......36%!!!!! So it will wind up costing me about $15,500 to keep my free truck......:jaw-dropping:

    So I'm happy to say everything is going great!!!!!! .:banana_smiley:

    Driving my new truck like I stole it!!!!!!
     
  15. Well good you have such a positive attitude that really sucks with the truck just not right good luck my friend
