What I'm going to do with my lotto winnings.

For the past few weeks I've had the feeling that I'm due to win the lottery. I expect I'll buy my ticket this afternoon. When I win, here's the first thing I'm going to buy:





It's in a ski area in Idaho. Only $2.25 million from Castle Magic.

And then maybe a beach cabin.

Jack and Poodles, I thought we decided to move our retirement to the Hotel Beaumont. Closer to Crockett Street and easier on the wheelchairs.

I have such different first plans! Sleep as long as I can, pay off everything, send some friends money so they can be free too. Set up accounts for my brothers. Then begin a long road trip to decompress from my previous life, stopping to see friends and relatives I haven't seen in a while. At some point, I would visit a certain friend, knock him out cold and drag his conscious body off to a medical center. After that is done, I think I will just travel the world for a bit, maybe try and find a missing friend..

Laurie--

If I'm going to be in a wheelchair, it's going to be because I broke my back skiing home to the castle drunk. Then I'll move into the Hotel Beaumont, but not before.


Susan--

I didn't say it's what I'd do with the money first; I said it's the first THING I'd BUY. Big difference. There's lots of stuff I'd do with the money before I bought any things. The first thing I'd DO with the money is pay off all my debts. I guess you could call that buying freedom, but I don't think freedom really qualifies as a "thing."

If freedom can be purchased with money, then doesn't it qualify as a thing? If not a thing, than what is it?

Freedom's just aother word for nothing left to lose.

Sometimes, you are SO predictable ;-) but I still like you.

For myself alone, if I won enough money I would adopt a child, a girl from Nepal or China, if I could. I know, that is predictable too.

Fluffy, you know I will follow you anywhere you want to go. . .the snow-capped mountains of Idaho, or the porch swing in Beaumont, with or without the lottery winnings. And don't you worry, I won't let anyone knock you unconscious and drag you off to a medical center! xoxo Poodles

When all of you people get tired of the snow, you can come visit me in Vegas or the French Quarter.

Poodles- I didn't say who the certain friend was, but I will say it was his idea. I know it is a little bit kinky, but I see no problem accomodating this particular suggestion of his, some of the others I am not so sure about ;-)

I've never been snow skiing. Come to think of it, I've never even had a desire to go snow skiing. I have, however, always wanted to spend several weeks basking in the sun on a white-sand beach surrounded by crystal blue water, and, of course, a cabana boy who looks like Sawyer of Lost or maybe Keith Urban, and whose only job is to serve my every need. What was I thinking? Get back Jack! Miss Jane's headed for the shores of Puerto Rico!

Susan in St. Paul -- I meant no offense. My apologies. I didn't realize that knocking a man unconscious and dragging him off to a medical center was a form of foreplay. Poodles

Poodles-Its okay.
Some guys are just a bit more twisted than others, what can I say? I figure as long as no one actually gets hurt, I am game ;-)
