Suffering from C.R.S

Sirtain

I'm trying to remember the author or title without success, story was about a lotto winner who continues to work but moves away from ex in Texas (divorced prior to win)
Gets involved in a crooked real estate deal in Scottsdale
Meets his dream woman in a bowling alley....

Damn, never mind, Title is bowling for hearts by rare dream

CRS= Can't remember S**T

CRS= Can't remember S**T


You can spell that out here. For more polite company, use: Can't Remember Stuff.

On the hole, can't remember toilet paper is a bigger problem.

Was that pun intended? If so, it was pretty good!

That comment was actually by Richardshagrin, and given his previous history of posts, I'd say it was deliberate.

Sometimes funny Ha Ha, sometimes funny peculiar. My mind tends to work that way. I look at a story like Aftermath and think Recess? Lunch? not a class that requires lots of thought. At least if I were scheduling my classes.

Sometimes intended to be Ha Ha but turns out peculiar.

Can't find it bookmarked but what I do remember might get others to remember.

Guy wins the lotto meets a nice women in a bar/bowling ally.

They hook up and the relationship moves on pretty quick and they move in together.

No big spoilers but here are wants in the story simplified.

1: Killing bad guys
2: Starting up a business
3: Friends with celebrities
4: Rich girlfriend
5: Ex causing problems
6: Mob/ cartel related violence

Women is divorce and has a lot of money due to hair salon chain I think. She has two daughters.

He is divorce and uses his money from the lotto to buy a nice house and plot of land in a gated golf community. Has a daughter and a Son.

Rest is in line with what Sirtain remembers plus he starts a business and hires lots of ex cops for some security thing.

Old thread but I am also looking for the story and don't want to start a new thread.

Occasionally some of us get really desperate for conversation. At least that would be my excuse.

Maybe Bowling for Hearts by Rare Dream

Sirtain. You should be careful about your abbreviations. The CRS was well known during the Paris student demonstrations for breaking heads. Until recently (at least) they were "sorting out" the local illegal immigrants. They are very well remembered for their shit

The Cooperative Retail Society? ;)

The Guardia Civil are the Spanish counterpart. I don't know what kind of reputation they have nowadays but when Franco was alive they were very unpleasant.

Franco's dead? Most of Spain doesn't seem to have realised :(

Franco'

"Francisco Franco Bahamonde was a Spanish general who ruled over Spain as a military dictator from 1939 until his death in 1975."

An admirer of Hitler. It was mutual - until they met. Franco had a reedy high-pitched voice and he wanted Hitler to take Gibraltar for him without offering anything in return - such as actually joining in the war.
Spain is still in the same time-zone as Germany now, because Franco admired Hitler.

Vlad; a masterpiece of understatement. I was in Cataluna during Franco's time and still have friends who were on his hit list. The Guardia Civil were terrifying and many years after his death certain members were still "not perfect"
