Close....but no cigar

Looks like I'll have to wait until next week to make this beauty mine.  This weeks Mega Millions lottery drawing has come and gone, and sadly I missed winning $199,800,000 by only 5 numbers.  *sigh*

Don't tell me you don't think about it, 'cause everybody does.   "If I won the lottery I'd _______."  For myself, I'd build a small home on land (with a mountain view, of course) so far away from all the nut-cases running around the city even that Amazon drone thing would have trouble finding me to deliver groceries.  I would probably buy a few interesting firearms I've had my eye on for a while, and put a shooting range in my back yard.  

My spousal unit wants to set up some kind of senior dog refuge, which is fine with me, and she could probably use a new car, too.  My kids could enjoy some security, and my grandkids could get a good education on my dime(s).  Other than that, I'm good.  Oh, wait....t-shirts.  I saw LL Bean has some new colors, so I might spiff up my wardrobe.

Bling cars (despite the above photo), boats, trains, planes....not my things.  I'd rather fund hunting down and locking up animal abusers, child abusers, elderly abusers....I don't like abusers.   Food banks would be full, scholarships plentiful, and veterans would feel appreciated.  "Stuff" is very overrated.  (I've finally come around.)

Think it would be selfish of me to travel a bit before I clock out?  I think it would be fun to run with the bulldogs.



  1. Ha! I love that commercial about running with the bulldogs. It seems that we're at that age where material things are just a problem.

  2. I'd love to run with bulldogs. Much safer unless they get wind you have treats.🐂🐶

  3. Thanks for the reminder! I'm off to the store to get a ticket. If I win the really big bucks, I'll get that car for you. :-)

  4. I would not want all the headaches of winning 200 million dollars. I'd be very comfortable with 5 million and anonymity.
