In addition to my first post...
If it was large enough for me to retire & never work another day for someone else- l would call the wife to let her firm know they can stick a fork in her- she is done.We would then high-tail it out of California for a two week vacation to Hawaii. On returning,  we will meet with financial advisors etc and structure a clear path to our future.

Lastly to others:  Don't call me, l will call you,  if needed.
Party

vacation to Hawaii.

    Being self-employed and going to Hawaii are both things you could easily do without winning the lottery.

        Anyone remember "Sniglets" on HBO?

        Sniglets were words that don't exist that should.

        'Sneezle' is an example, the act of spraying your computer screen with whatever you're drinking when you see something funny on it.

        Maybe we could come up with a sniglet for things some lottery players think they can't do unless they win a jackpot.

        Good point, Ronnie.

        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            I'd take all my dogs down the mountain and into town and get 'em all quarter pounders at MickeyD's.

            They'd love that cuz they usually just get regular hamburgers.

            And as usual, I'd have to return the burgers w/everything they give me at the drive-up window and tell them to give me the plain ones I ordered.

            I hope they sleep outside. Dog farts are the worst. You should hang a few air fresheners on their tails.

                  Once I claimed my prize, I would leave my apartment and move into a nice hotel in manhattan until I figured out what my next move would be. 

                  Thumbs Up

                  Thats what I was thinking!  I would sign my ticket with ink, and then

                  Call a limo to take me to the Ritz, or some other snazzy Hotel, and stay in the penthouse for a week allowing me some time to come back to earth.

                  Also I might get hammered during the ride.Hippy

                  And I might even have the driver stop off for some all you can eat quarter pounders, and kung po shrimp.Wink

                    I vaguely remember they had a word to describe the feeling when getting off an escalator or something.  Somebody bought that book for my parents.

                    It was the "gift" to give at the time, I suppose.

                      ... If you won a large jackpot.

                      Me: Go to a big box store and buy a Trac phone for a burn phone.

                       

                      Many, many other planned things to do in a specific order after that one, but that would be my absolute first thing I would do.

                      What about you?

                      I'd buy a pair of new shoes.
