Subject: RE: Lyr Req: The Spanish Lady
The wheel of fortune is one of those fairground gambling things where you throw darts at a spinning board. As an image of the vagaries of fate it goes back at least to the Middle Ages with the Carmina Burana. The list of numbers is just what's on the board, nothing to do with counting money or tests of sobriety.
