The jackpot is near 500 million dollars for the Mega Millions Lottery. The drawing is tonight. By then the winning ticket could be worth 600 million dollars!

I have my ticket, do you?

We've seen the long lines in some states of people waiting to purchase their tickets. There was no line at the EZ Mart on Highway 71 South yesterday. It took three tries to get it right. I kept marking the wrong boxes. The cashier had to be thinking "rookie."

I have not purchased a ticket for the lottery in years. Probably because I usually forget to check to see if I have the winning numbers so there isn't much point in getting a ticket.

Good luck to everyone that plays but I secretly hope you lose and I win!
