The Winner is ME!!

I left the house for like, oh I dont know, 10 minutes yesterday.
While I was out the mailman put in a notice of a certified letter in our box.
I am sure he had to be on the look out to be able to leave it whilst I was away.

Certified letters are never good news but it said the sender was OVERTONS
Who is that?
Do I owe them money?
Is it an Ebay purchase?
Why Certified?
It has to be important!
Stupid thing said I couldnt pick it up at post office for 3 more hours!
Hes probably not going to get done with his route till then and has to sit in his car waiting to miss other homeowners.

But then......
I remembered!
Last spring I entered hundreds of sweeps
You can find them on this forum

I did enter a contest for Overtons

They are located here.

First prize
15,000 dollars

So me being me and all optimistic
Pinged, Im'd Tweeted, facebooked, told every single person I know all about it.
We just had to wait three hours.
I wasted that time telling everyone and making a spreadsheet what to do with my winnings.

Long story short, Too late I know

I won a pair of waterskis
No cash option
No water anywhere near me
Not a water person of any sort unless its like you know the hot tub
Closest I get to watersports is trying not to drop my drink on way back from swim up bar.

Maybe I can sell them on Ebay
