What Would You Do
with 540 million dollars?? Now, I don't play the lottery. I think I've only played it once back in PA when it was over $200 million but generally as a rule, I don't play. Now I don't have a problem with anyone else playing. I'm just too cheap to toss money after a dream that I have a 1 in 176 million chance to win. Sure, it could happen. But things like that just don't usually happen to me. But I was thinking the other day of what I would do if I did win the lottery. There's the usual things like tithing, making sure my kids were taken care of , paying off my mortgage, yada yada yada. Then I thought maybe I'd buy or set up a needlework store. But having worked in the industry for 17 years, I've decided being a owner is not for me. Especially in this economy. The business is too cyclical and with the prices of everything going up with no sign of stopping, well, a LNS can be a money pit for the owner. Now don't get me wrong but I think anyone who owns a LNS and keeps it running is a miracle worker. But it's just not for me. So what would I do with my money? I'd buy an apartment on the Residensea, a floating city. Ever since I saw a TV special on it, I have wanted to buy an apartment on the ship. It's a cruise liner with actual apartments that you can buy and live in while the ship travels the world. They have stores on board, restaurants, libraries, theaters, and just about anything you can imagine to make life a breeze. Imagine never having to unpack, being able to have home-cooked meals, all while seeing the world. Gosh, now I want to run out and buy a lottery ticket. Better go while there's still time!
