Everyone has office pools going, and people are stopping to buy tickets and get gas as the jackpot climbs into the 'interesting' range--as of this writing $421 Million. The cash option on that will be $290.9 Million. Stop and think about that for a minute... That kind of money is life-changing for sure-and Mega Millions allows you to remain anonymous when you claim your money... An option I would certainly choose because you don't need fake family members 'coming out of the woodwork' so to speak if you're announced the winner. There was a winner in Texas on Tuesday who won a Million by matching all 5 white balls but no one got the big prize... Also as of this writing you still have time to get your tickets--so hurry!

If you WERE lucky enough to hit it big-and you chose the cash option-I thought it would be fun to take a look around and see what you could buy here in Midland Odessa with all that cash burning a hole in your pocket... Of course, you'd want a house upgrade-so why not go all-in? Like this beauty at 10500 E County Road 120, Midland, TX 79706... 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths, 1 half bath, 797,148 square foot lot... Won't even make a dent in your winnings coming in at a mere $3,100,000.00.....

Now that you have the house--gotta get the car! Nothing says "I drip Money instead of sweat" like a Lamborghini Huracan... And this one's for sale in Houston. Not exactly right out our front door--but just THINK about how much FUN it'll be driving it back here!!! Just a smidge over $328,000.00.

Ah, one can dream. And that's exactly what I'm off to go do (after I buy my tickets of course.. Or, as my Mother-In-Law Margaret used to say when she was still with us--"Make my donation"). Because after all--we supposedly have better odds of being struck by lightning than winning the lottery. Good luck to you! See ya at Kent Kwik buying tickets!
