5 Colorado Things You Won’t Buy After Missing Powerball Jackpot
Well, I didn't win Saturday night's Powerball jackpot, and apparently, neither did you. Nobody won. With that in mind, here are five Colorado things we won't be buying.
For the first time in 31 years I bit my lip and bought a Lotto ticket. Technically, I've never bought a "Lotto" ticket before. Back in 1988, on my 18 birthday, I forked over two dollars and purchased two Colorado Lottery scratch tickets. If memory serves, one ticket was a $2 winner. I figured breaking even was better than losing, and never played again.
Well, Saturday's Powerball jackpot exceeded $300 million. I couldn't pass it up. As it turns out, not only did I not win the jackpot, I didn't win anything. So, given that harsh reality, here are five Colorado things I won't be buying.
It appears I won't be buying 1,783.06 acres of dirt near Colorado Springs. I've always wanted a 1,783.06 acre vacant lot, but I'll just have to keep dreaming.
This is really good dirt. I know that's not profound or anything, but this really is an awesome dirt lot. I have no connections to Colorado Springs, or any desire to, but this lot would have been awesome. Maybe... someday.
We could have bought this little beauty for $5,200. It doesn't matter that I live on a 1/4 lot with no agriculture to speak of. That's beside the point.
On the bright side, the next Powerball drawing is coming up this Wednesday night, and with any luck, this essential item will still be available.
All joking aside, I would seriously love to own this. Wouldn't you? It's available at the low, low price of $18,500.
Me Likey! This could be yours for just $4,275! Everybody should have one.
This machine was produced in 1993. It may very well be the last pinball machine I've ever played. According to the info, it's in good condition. Get yours today!
That'll do. How about a five-bed, five-bath, 7,039 house in Grand Junction? The selling price of $1,900,000 would barely put a dent in the jackpot prize amount. Did I mention the four-car garage and 20 acres of land?
