Winning he Lottery-Meet the Author Week 6
Thanks to P.J. Fiala for sending folks my way. Have you read any of her books yet? You should check them outI think my favorite (so far) is Second Chances. You can find it here Second Chances.
Now on to this week's question. What would I do if I won the lottery?
Funnily enough, I don't play the lottery. Not any more, anyway. I used to play, but I rarely picked more than one right number. So I gave it up. Still, it's fun to dream, isn't it?
I'm going to assume I've won over a million dollars. More like ten million. After all, why play if you're not playing for the big bucks.The first thing I'd want to buy is a log cabin up in the mountains somewhere. That shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who knows me. Think how much more productive I'll be without the internet to distract me from my writing.
Next would be a house on the ocean. Two, actually. One on the Oregon Coast for my hubby, one on Florida for my daughter. We'd split winters between the three places. I actually like snow!
I'll also need to set up a trust fund to pay for my grandson's college. While all that's going on, I'll be making a list of what charities I want to make a donation to. So many marvelous organizations out there doing important work. I believe the local food bank will top the list. Maybe two food banks- one near the cabin location, and one near the ocean residence.
And that's about it. I'm set. Sure, If you forced me to spend it all, I could find ways to do it. But it would feel pretty good to have the rest of it tucked away in a bank for emergencies.
