Late Winner
By Earl
The Associated Press reports that a Fort Lauderdale woman claimed a $10 million Florida Lotto prize more than two months after she had tossed the winning ticket into a sewing drawer, thinking it was a minor win from a four-number match, that she would some day collect. Diane Charboneau, 55, a computer programmer, reportedly found the 6-number match, the May 29th winning ticket, among several other old tickets in the draw when she looked again at what she had.

Thinking at first that she had only four of the winning numbers, “I thought that was nice,” she said. “When I checked all six numbers, I had them all. All I could say was, 'Oh my God, I have all of them.'

She and her companion, Robert Phillips, are considering retirement. The winner said she would donate some of her winnings to charity.
