When I Win the Lottery...

...I'm maybe going to "buy a gate for our lane, or change our house numbers." Really? You just won $640k after taxes and you are going to hit the home improvement aisle at Lowes? People! You just won the lottery and you have a responsibility to inspire the rest of us to continue purchasing tickets! No one is going to check up on you to make sure you did what you said, so lie to us, THEN hit Home Depot! Here are some ideas: Buy an island and build your dream house Move to New Zealand & fly fish every river Raft the Amazon Confirm that the worlds top 10 beaches deserve to be on that list Start a foundation Get your dream car Traverse Tibet Spend a month in India Move to the South of France

Oh, that's easy for me. I'd buy 40 acreas and put some wall tents up and run a camp for kids. Different months, different kids. Kids with cancer, abused kids, kids who've lost parents or siblings, kids who are underprivliged, kids at risk. I'd have a working farm, and a rehab center for wildlife where the kids could learn to take care of the animals. It's been a dream for 30 years. Maybe someday...

Yes. I couldn't believe my ears when I saw them on television. So many people just aren't inspired with a vision. They really just think that they can get some new house numbers. Amazing isn't it?

Oh, I got a little too literal here didn't I. I didn't see that interview. Hey, but now you know what I'd do it I won!

Want to know what I'd do? I'd hire a full time house keeper. Yep, like Alice from the Brady Bunch. Only it would be up to her to make all the kids help her with stuff, cause they need to learn how to do all that stuff. And then I'd immediately head down to Women of Steel and sign up for welding lessons, while researching the top ten beaches......

I would tell them that I would hire artists to sculpt an 600 foot image of Bullwinkle and Rocky in Cheez Whiz.

And then I would invest in a national chain of strip clubs that cater only to dwarf humans.

Then if any cash is left over, I would lease a cruise ship to circumvent the world while offering guests the best selection weed on the planet!
