Life's Lottery

When my friend Joe Stone texted me this Wednesday night my first thought was "Damn, I really should have played it."  By it, I am referring to the number 489.  

Following my Mom's passing at the age of 89, Joe had informed me that his Mom was also 89 when she passed a few weeks previously.  We then talked about how Lindy McKay and Mary Ann Hammett were also 89.  I told Joe "Maybe we should play the number 489 and box it."  

Well, we should have because the winning number this past Tuesday was 849!

Having missed out on playing 489, my next hot tip is 431.  (All 4 were born in 1931.)  When 431  hits however, don't bother letting me know because as with 489, I probably won't play it either.

Closest I could get to 489 musically was this Beach Boys' tune talking about a car with a 409 engine:
