I am not talking about the the house or car or the trip but something that would be on your minor bucket list (after the hoopla died down and you are contemplating "what next?"), maybe it does not even cost a lot but you just never had the time.

I would like to search out and buy all the Nancy Drew books (60 plus...the hard back yellow ones) and read all of them. You can read one in a couple of hours. I was amused by the fact that Nancy always packed "crisp" clean dresses in her suitcase and they remained that way...lol Several of my books from childhood were destroyed in some flooding years ago.

    I'd give it to a no-kill shelter for dogs.

    And if I won the big one, I'd build a massive no-kill shelter here.

    We are in dire need here because the few there are, are always full.

    If only people were as nice as dogs...

          and a free lottery ticket of her choice! A fun day for her! We used to also give lily plants for Mother's day.  Do people still do that?

            Oh geez, yeah I forget to mention lotto tickets! I always give her tons of scratch tickets and EP's on MM and PB, for her Birthday and Christmas,

            so of course for Moms day to.  Hippy

             

            Plants of any type, Lily's included, are still a real popular gift for moms everywhere.

                        I know where you're comin' from, dallas.

                        I need my "down time" too.

                        No commotion, no yappin', just peace and quiet.

                          $1000 or less?  Dinner at Red Lobster or Texas Roadhouse for the wife, kids, and parents.

                            I agree, my husband and son are going camping next weekend.Hyper YEEEEE HAAAAAAW

                            I would spend less than a thousand on summer stock ups for the house, I hate shopping in the heat so  I would get the heavy stuff while it's still mild out.

                            Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

                            For a lead role in a cage?
