Keith Comes Up Big On Father’s Day

Dunno what you fathers got for Father’s Day. But it might not compare to the gift that Keith Erickson received. For those of you keeping score at home, Keith (a former Coeur d’Alene Press reporter) and I were rival local government reporters back in the day. Now, fast forward to Sunday when Keith’s wife gave him a $5 Aerosmith-“Dream On”-themed, Idaho lottery ticket. Which turned out to be worth $500. Coincidentally, Aerosmith’s “Dream On” was playing on Keith’s head set when he turned it in at a local convenience store for the cash.

Question: Do you give lottery tickets as gifts to friends and family? Any of your recipients ever won much money on one?
