My parents were particularly nervous.  Both of their boys (my older brother Mark and I) were in the very first lottery draw.  They professed at the time they would move to Canada if necessary, but we also had college (San Diego State for Mark, UCLA for me) as a fall-back.  We were all truly lucky, as my Oct. 27 pulled number 264 and Mark’s Nov. 5 came in at 310.  Oh Happy Day!
