    I Agree!  I would really live it up if I was 84.  She probably has a bucket list.  But, she's most likely overwhelmed with what's going on now to start checking things off.  So, she's taking it day by day.  She already is planning to move to a nicer place, and I bet some other life changes are probably in the works.

        lol i bet so too, its a good thing she is so old, that makes it much more easier to stay out the spot light because if she was young she would be caught in night clubs, professional sporting events etc and the paparazzi would harras her.Smash

          If I ever won the jackpot, I could still see myself shopping at Walmart. Many of the things they sell are the same quality at some other stores but lower cost. A two liter Pepsi for example, is usually 60 to 40 cents cheaper there than anywhere else in my area. Why would I pay the extra 60 cents for the same exact thing? That is just one example, I don't have the time to list more.

            These folks are just plain ole folks! They Don't need anything fancy, new cars, nice homes and such. Looks like they are very comfortable with the way they are living. I do think they need to get serious about obtaining some body guards to protect them all. There are really some crazy people out here in this world that will do anything to get their hands on that much money. They need to be very careful how they move about the town, someone could easily grab her or her son to hold for ransom. I hope nothing happens to any of them, but you can never let your Guard down for one minute....Hope they will be ok!!. Just wished I could win 1 million!!  No numbers last night matching. Will wait for Saturday. Y'all have a good day!!!!!! Good Luck too!!

              Why play if you are not going to live better .................

              She is going to live better just that she has to be very carefull how she transitions from living poor to living rich . She is so use to living poor so living rich instantly could cause her a heart attack so she really needs to transition really slowly like pouring a hot water in a glass if you pour too fast the glass will crack. I remember the first time i went to a new york city restaurant and l was so furrious with my brother for ordering a larg plate of onion rings . l said you crazy you wasting food we don't need all off this stuff. Six months later am use to the drill and am ordering even salad extra while my t-bone steak is still on grill lol . So she is doing fine going on her own time table so congrats to her and i wish people stop bothering her privacy she is not britney spears.

                On the other hand she is not your typical old lady as she was able to cut people off in line to buy her winning  ticket so she could transition quicker than i thought . she could be a speedy gonzalas lol so don't mess with her . My advice for her now is to buy a walking james bond cane with a taser attached at the end for defense lol.

                  Maybe the article is wrong, and the money hasn't yet transferred INTO this massive Powerball Lottery jackpot winner's checking account yet. 

                  Perhaps after the money is available for spending, she will be spending it, lavishly, on more than the newly purchased house that she already spent big earnest money towards.

                        And can someone tell me what's wrong with a lottery winner shopping at Walmart?

                        The lottery is NOT a tax on the poor.  By calling it a tax, you are calling it mandatory, which is what taxes are.  But the lottery is NOT mandatory, therefore calling it a tax highly inaccurate.

                          Beside the fact that most are god forsaken filty stores with typically lower class citizens roaming around to save a buck buying cheap Chinese crap, nothing is wrong with it.    Sorry I sugarcoated it. Confused

                            Funny how he's worry about his mom NOW, like i said  he never gave her a second thought before her new found wealth

                            now it's like mom you can stay with us.

                            He already has his half of the money.  No reason to worry about her now unless he really cares.  I'd imagine she was fine on her own before, plus it sounds like neither really had the resources for a home big enough for him and him and her.  Now she's getting older and they have plenty to buy a home with plenty of room for her to have her own kitchen or whatever she wants so they can each have their privacy.

                              Sounds like you're describing the one closest to me,

                              I always leave empty handed and disappointed.

                              I know people that live in the town where it's located and they tell me they don't go there,

                              they go to another one that's 25 miles away.

                               

                              I guess there not all bad, but if I don't like that one, why would I expect the further one to be better.
