12/13/14 - Lucky Day - Car Problem Solved

12/13/14, Saturday,  turned out to be a special day for me.  I went to the Casino for their elite Royale Christmas Party.  Attendees received an entry for the car drawing as we went in for  a dinner of Lobster and Filet, mashed potatoes, salad, veggies, finished off by chocolate layer cake with free drinks included.  To make a long story short, I was one of 10 people whose ticket was drawn from the barrel.  That automatically awarded me $1,000 slot play or the car.  When selected, we were asked to go down to the stage and pick a wrapped box.  When everyone had their box, they started calling names for people to open their box.  Six people opened $1000 gift  certificates.  I was still standing with a one in four chance of winning the car.  My turn to open my box.......................inside was the certificate above right!  I was the winner of the 2015 Mercedes Benz! Or, $25,000 in cash.  The car is pictured at right.  I have a few days to make a decision.  I am leaning towards taking the car.  (I will call my accountant on Monday morning for details on how much I will owe and tax repercussions) As I posted earlier, the Captiva I had wanted got sold before I could get my car in for an appraisal.  So, when one door closed.......................................
