Did you wake up wealthy?

An Oregonian, or at least someone who bought a Powerball lottery ticket in Oregon, won the $340 million drawing last night. Was it you? Was it me?

I like to think it was me.

It wasn't me.

When I learned last night that an Oregon ticket has won I had to check my tickets. If I won I certainly wouldn't be telling you people about it. I like you and all, but I think I would have other priorities with the second largest jackpot in U.S. lottery history coming my way.

Instead, I will be going to work today, thankful that I get paid this week.

$340 million is too much. Be glad you didn't win this time. Put your buck on the next small pot, chances of winning are much better. :)

Too much? There can be too much debt (which I have) but too much money? I've never had that. Plus you only get half if you take your payment all and once. Then the government takes about half of that.

$340 million doesn't go as far as it used to Lois. But I do appreciate you looking out for me and not letting my head, or wallet, swell too much.
