Oh my goodness! Have you seen or heard tonight‘s estimated Mega Millions jackpot amount?  It’s all the way up to $1-billion not $1-million, but $1-billion!!

It was at $970-million dollars...like that’s not enough!  No one got lucky on Tuesday night's drawing.

The lump sum of Friday’s drawing now is at nearly $740,000,000 dollars!  Look at all those zeros!

The big prize drawing is tonight at 11 o’clock, Eastern.  That's 8 pm our time, so we still have time to purchase tickets.  They're $2.  I think I'll at least purchase maybe 5 tickets for tonight's drawing.

What would you do with all that money?  My husband Jeff, and I have discussed moving to Mexico.  That’s pretty much the only place we’ve ever been.  So naturally, we plan on doing some real traveling if we win the mega millions.

What would you be doing if you won?

Remember the days when you and all your coworkers got together and went in on getting numerous tickets and somebody made copies of all the tickets?  Today, hardly anybody is in our office, due to Covid.

So, it’s up to me to get my own tickets.  I’ve been spending a few more dollars recently on Powerball and Mega Millions.  It’s nice to dream, isn’t it?

Maybe we can go on vacation to another country, other than Mexico.  Maybe Poland, maybe China, maybe Japan.

And if I don’t win, I suppose I can always travel north to Canada!  Somehow, it doesn't seem as chic as saying you visited China.

***UPDATE***
Someone in Michigan purchased the winning ticket for the $1.05 Billion Mega millions jackpot. The winning numbers were: 4, 26, 42, 50, and 60. The Mega ball was 24.
