    All they hype about the Big Lotto has me wondering.....

    If you won this (or otherwise happened into a Truly Obscene amount of money), what would be the very first thing you'd purchase? Not the biggest, or the most responsible, etc. But if you had that Huge Amount of money available this afternoon, what would your very first purchase be? What would you spend the money on today?

    Jewelry store? Electronics store? Car lot? Book store? Boat shop? Take the entire family and friends out for a nice dinner? Large hatchery order [​IMG] ?

    I know we could all come up with Big Plans for the money, I just think it would be fun to see what everyone would do as that very first purchase.

    A very nice chicken coop, and I'd start looking for a new house with a barn

    I'd hire a lawyer! I bought 2 tickets and felt absolutely sick about it as I usually don't get into the lottery thing. I'm glad I didn't win....if I had I would have given to charities.

    I would probably do like most and buy a new vehicle. Its such a must have thing in everyday life and I like most have had my share of worrying about, old tires, bad batteries, etc. Just would want something I could get around with to spend the rest of it.

    Before you spend an extra $10,000 per year to avoid a single flat battery or old tire, you might like to check if you have lemon laws where you live. Many places have bad or no lemon laws at all.

    Or you could just get a restored VW beetle for half the price, and drive forever.

    I know this is old, but thought it was an interesting thread idea...

    Probably a bag of chocolate, or maybe some 2x4s to keep the coop roof from collapsing till next spring.

    I'd make a huge amazon order.
