Did you peek inside my brain before writing this post, GG? 

I also play just because I love numbers and all their glorious permutations.  And, I am sure I wouldn't quit playing with the numbers after a big win.

Not workin' for the man, financial freedom -- Oh Yeah! Banana

Big house (with cleaning crew!)on top of a hill with wonderful views  -- Oh Yeah!  Banana

Free time -- Oh Yeah!  Banana

Hey there, Tialuvslotto!  It is the LOVE for numbers and the game that keeps us at it, right?  Lover

I've always been an impatient sort, not content to wait on "luck".  If there's any way I can gain an advantage, I'll take it, so I'm an analyst.  I may not have that jackpot yet but I do get money back.  That's how I need it to be, so I work at it.  But it's the kind of work I love. "Glorious Permutations" ~ yes!  On our way to financial freedom and all the fun that can bring.  Cool

    mikeintexas, this looks like a great piece of property to build your home and menagerie on!  Only thing missing is the 450 acres your other prospect had.  The idea of acreage is perfect for security and privacy imo.  Lots of options for off the grid living and nosey neighbors.  Good Luck.

    Oops my reply checkmark to your post didnt stay, sorry.

        Winning the lottery?  You mean once, twice, three times? 50?  Wink

        Numbers are an ongoing fascination for me so I know I'll always be playing the game, the games, winning as much $$ as I can, whatever that might be and wherever that might take me. 

        I've managed to reach some goals this year on winning but I want a jackpot.  Like, you know, everyone else. Smile

        The main thing is, I don't want to be working for the man.  I've done it for too long.  It's sure worked out nice for him but not for his employees.  So financial freedom 1st.

        2nd:  a house of about 3000 sq.ft.  Maybe 4000.  It's gotta be up on a big hill, with a great view.

        3rd:  Enough free time and money to go back to college and work on the Math again, get a degree. 

        Numbers - I just never get tired of them.  Lovies

        You Right Clarisse. It's all about numbers- in the case of the lottery,  the RIGHT numbers. A few month's ago the Wife & l were watching " The Imitation Game"..it boils down to being a numbers movie. But the machine that Turing built was huge and it had to counter the German's enigma machine- which was small in comparison. Given a choice in a Sci Fi world,  l would have liked to have learned Borg Algorithms...from 7 of 9. Perhaps it could have enabled me to win the lottery, given that they were so advanced in technology.Big Smile

          Great answers! I've enjoyed reading them.

          To add to the "I can" and "Detroit Red Wings Season Tickets", I'll add because someone has to win and I'd like season tickets to all the local pro sports teams. And I'd like an upgrade to my Camry, please, like to a BMW.

           

          And financial security being the main reason. Too many things happened to that nice little nest egg my ex and I built - divorce, economy, etc etc. I have everything I need now and minimal retirement savings, but what happens when I'm in my 70's and still needing to work? I ain't no spring chicken. Walmart greeter doesn't pay very well. 

          And no, I'm not depending on winning to save me. I just don't want to live with my sister. We are both pack rats and will wind up on the Hoarders show if we live together too long.

            I loved that movie!  It helped me to feel not so alone in this world.  As a kid I was always doing crossword puzzles.  Puzzles of all kinds, really, but my favorite was crosswords.  So, as you may guess, I was not a terribly popular child, ha.  Unhappy  But as I always say, once a nerd, always a nerd.  Smile

              I hear you on that retirement issue.  My job offered no 401k, no nuthin'.  If we love the lottery, we might as well win on it, right?  Wink
