Ok, now who has seen this famous van, with the words on it: THE PRIZE PATROL?
We’ve seen those envelopes in the mailbox for years and years, watched the commercials, now see that they’ve taken to Facebook… and They are once again coming to your neighborhood!
The famous Prize Patrol; those great folks with a big ole’ check longer than we are, to change the lives of the one behind the front door. But, I ask you again, have you ever ever known anyone, or seen that famous van in your neighborhood? Just once I would love to see it roll by, knowing that it is heading to my neighbors house, a friends house, to my house even! To the home of one I know or can celebrate as the van rolls in and the door gets knocked on, only to be opened by one who can then pay it forward after falling all over the floor with sheer delight by the thrill of it all.
Oh my can you even imagine! After going through the countless mail, offers of this and that, the magazines too and the deals often that just amaze… no purchase necessary to be eligible to win it all. Sounds just marvelous doesn’t it.
The Prize Patrol, poised and great looking people posing at the red door, not knowing who will open it; what they will look like on the other side of that door, but knowing a life will be changed forever…. Oh my, just imagine it.
Nice door … great looking folks, but what about that van, the follow up in the news? We never hear about that, how they manage after the van drives off and how their lives are.
Oh life is just filled with everyday mysteries and fun if we think about it. Imagine having the great job of driving the Prize Patrol van, and the places you go, the people you meet and the horns that blare and people leaning out the windows saying “follow me home Prize Patrol, pick me”? Yes a grand job of driver I’m thinking, especially if they drive on a Monday where folks need a bit of a motivator to move into the week and get their shine on.
Just might be that the end of February, I’ll drive around town just to look for that van, as I notice that is when they will be picking the lucky winner right here in my town (at least that is what the latest envelope says), and that I need to hurry and validate the latest mail in order to not be left out. Seems that someone with the same initials SS in my area is “in the win zone”, so I better clean the driveway and be sure to be dressed appropriately on that magic day. Ah yes, just as Oprah told that Barbra Walters oh so long ago, “I am destined for greatness”, so I’m thinkin it is in the waitin on that magic van, and the Prize Patrol of 2013.
Keep watching, you too may have the right initials and that van may be on its way to your door.
Let me know if you’ve ever seen it on the roads after all these years, commercials, mailings … surely someone has. Wonder whatever happened to all those people that have won? We do hear of lottery winners, their choices, mistakes, murders, yet no one reports on the great Prize Patrol winners … just a bit of humor to start the week. Where are they anyway?
Oh yes, don’t worry if you are not home when they roll up. According to the Prize Patrol, they will make every effort to find you on that special day! Whew, I am relieved as I will be in Durant Oklahoma speaking then. I hope they get this so they can adjust the route. More to come about that event, but in the meantime, all those in Oklahoma, look for the info, and I will look forward to seeing you there! Just follow the Prize Patrol Van…
Welcome to the week, and take best care of YOU,
