OMG. The New Jersey Lottery has announced a big winner in our area...and it's not me. Lol. Whomp, whomp. But, it could be you.

The winning ticket is worth a whopping $650,969. Whoa. That's a lot of money. It's a Jersey Cash 5 ticket from Sunday, January 2nd's drawing, and the ticket matched all five numbers.

The lucky ticket was sold at Krauszer's convenience store on Brewers Bridge Road in Jackson, NJ (Ocean County). The store gets a $2,000 bonus for selling the ticket. Not bad. Did you play the lottery there? You'd better get your tickets out and check 'em right now.

I know we have lots of PST listeners in the Jackson area. I wonder if someone from PST Nation is the big winner? I hope so.

This secretly kills me. You may have heard me mention before that I play the lottery for my dad every single day. He loves it and doesn't get out much because of the COVID-19 pandemic, so my sister and I have been designated the stand-ins. Lol.

He doesn't play all of the lottery games, but, Jersey Cash 5 is one of his favorites to play, and he gets a ticket for the next drawing daily. Why can't we win a big jackpot? Why not us??? LOL.

Ahhh, I've got such amazing plans for a jackpot that big. It's simple, I'd buy a beach house. I'd also help family, donate to my favorite charities, and have some fun, of course. I've always wanted to march into a bar and yell, "Drinks on me." Lol.

Ahhh, to dream. Congratulations to the winner.
