if yall hit the lottery tomorrow what would you do with the money? would ya take a lump sum or would you a bit every week for 20 years?


i would take some every week. the first thing i would do is pay off my parents and grandparents bills . next i would buy Chinqua Penn Plantation so i could touch everything in the house. then i would donate some to Historical Conservation Societes. and i would probably just put the rest in the bank for collage or whatever else i took a wantin to.

Spread it out over 20 years.
Give 12% to my church.
Support some children through some world care agencies.
Donate frequently to CWPT.
Buy a road worthy hotrod (1930's vintage with a 350 4 speed engine).
Buy about 600-1,00 acres of land (wooded, clearing, swamp mix).
Build a huge log cabin right on the edge opf those woods near the cleared land.
Have my own shooting range.
Prep the land for a big time CW Re-enactment.
Have a horse or two.
And thank GOD every day for my good fortune.

Pay all my bills off , buy a new car and house , donate a big amount to the Drum Barracks and CWPT then hit the road to travel to all the places I have wanted to visit but can't afford because the car is getting old and gas is so expensive. 

Oh wait I have to buy a ticket don't I ?  hmm not to self , maybe you could win if you bought a ticket.

Peter Gibbons: What would you do if you had a million dollars?
Lawrence: I'll tell you what I'd do, man: two chicks at the same time, man.
Peter Gibbons: That's it? If you had a million dollars, you'd do two chicks at the same time?
Lawrence: Damn straight. I always wanted to do that, man. And I think if I were a millionaire I could hook that up, too; 'cause chicks dig dudes with money.
Peter Gibbons: Well, not all chicks.
Lawrence: Well, the type of chicks that'd double up on a dude like me do.
Peter Gibbons: Good point.
Lawrence: Well, what about you now? what would you do?
Peter Gibbons: Besides two chicks at the same time?
Lawrence: Well, yeah.
Peter Gibbons: Nothing.
Lawrence: Nothing, huh?
Peter Gibbons: I would relax... I would sit on my *** all day... I would do nothing.
Lawrence: Well, you don't need a million dollars to do nothing, man. Take a look at my cousin: he's broke, don't do ****.

Dixie,

At 14 I can imagine you aren't that familiar with irony. The chances of me buying just a couple of books would be like, oh I don't know, Albert and Joe meeting in a bar somewhere (and that is sarcasm, just in case you wondered).

Best
Rob

Three actually, none have been published though I'm in the process of a rewrite on one to get it published, if all goes well it will be on the shelves early next year.  I've had quite a few articles & short stories published in small circulation venues.

You all can keep your island, I'll take a small chunk the Black Hills of SD w/ the promise that it will be returned to the Lakota upon my demise.  I'd be able to get back into a real vehicle, a pickup.  Also go by Cabela's and pick up the original M1859 Sharps and M1863 Spencer Rifles for a paltry $18k for the pair.  All in all we all have our dreams.
