If you won a million dollars in the lottery, would you save it for retirement?
What if you're already retired?
Meet Ron Peyton, from Virginia. He won a million dollars. He's retired. So I guess there's no point in saving for retirement since he's already retired.
Ron matched the first five numbers in the December 5th, 2012 Powerball draw. The first thing he did when he discovered his win was call his girlfriend. Wanna know what he told her?
We've got to find a way to spend a million dollars!
Friggin' right, man! Screw saving the money. It's time to spend spend spend... Time to have some fun fun fun!
OK, Ron may have been joking when he told his girlfriend they need to find a way to spend a million dollars. If so, I think he was only half joking. I have a feeling he's gonna have some serious fun with that cash. And, hey, why not? You never know when your time on this planet will expire - Might as well have some fun while you're still here!
Ron Peyton is 62-years-old and is from Richmond, VA. Congrats on the win, buddy!
