wow I am mesmerized.  It reminds me of those electric red washers and dryers that cost a fortune.  I can't stop staring.

        8 yrs is good. The gray is pretty also. I will add them to my list of future lottery jackpot purchases.

          gray looks OK, guess I got used to it,

          took the grey cause they did't have theW/D set in white,

           

          Yes, when you win you big, you can get any laundry equipt. you want,

          Better yet, just send the laundry  out.

            My thoughts exactly! Much better off investing into a more seasoned dwelling like this. You could probably move into this opportunity for around $50K.

            Dump the rest of your winnings into a high yield money market/CD, and the interest would more than pay for your property tax, upkeep, utilities,

            and much, much more! Thumbs Up

             

            While I wouldn't spend several millions on a mansion, with $29M to spend I wouldn't settle for a run down shack needing a new roof situated in a junk yard either.  There are plenty of construction companies in my area offering a nice selections of  custom build home on your lot for well under a half million dollars that I would probably opt for.

             * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                        And grow state fair zinnias?

                        Well....yes, an acre or two would be devoted to zinnias!   But more so, for a few goats, cows, horses and chickens.   Perhaps a turkey or two.   But most of all, a wonderful garden to putter in.  ....and the serenity of knowing the neighbors are not sitting right up on you.

                          I always check out the Zinnias at the State Fair.......

                              Except for 2-3 million in an income producing account. I WOULD SPEND IT ALL.
