my hubby and i were out and about today ... we stopped at a small store to get a bottled water (too hot :? ) ... there was a lady holding up the line playing the Lotto .. so i bought 2 tickets ... 20 million dollar jackpot :D

... so i asked my hubby ... "if we won the lotto .. what would be the first thing u would buy?" ... he said, "i'd be down at the Porshe dealer." :lol:

i would buy some real estate, than i immediatly started dividing family and friends take of the cash .. whats the point if u cant share ur wealth? :p


what would be the first splurge that u would buy?

(besides the obvious of saving and investing)

First thing would be a gorgeous house, then get the darkroom installed. :D Then I'd buy my bf the video camera setup of his dreams. Well actually, I probably give him 25 or 50% of it anyway, so I guess he could buy that himself. Then I'd pay off the houses for my parents and my brothers. Then would come the trip to Europe...

The first thing I would get would be a new Job.... One that I like, I think a photographer would be a good start. I would not cair if i made any Bleng Bleng I just got 20 mill right :twisted: next would be a house, and to help out my step brother. He has the coolest kids. Then I would go to sport bike school 8) , next would be the first photo forum party. It would be in Missoula Mt. but I think most of you would love it out here, most people who come to see me don't want to leave. I know it can't be just because me :wink: . and then the next day i would :lol: ......

I would buy Metcalf Lake in northern Montana.

How can one buy a lake? Plum Creek Lumber Co. bought up vast amounts of land previously held by railroad companys(land that was given to the RR giants as a enticment to complete the transcontinetal line). Among this land was much of the border of Metcalf Lake. Up until a recent survey it was believed that state land bordered a small portion of the lake.

Montana has been stocking this lake with trout for many years designating it as a tropy trout lake. Anglers were only allowed to keep on fish per day and it had to be larger than 25in.

Now Plum Creek Lumber is offering the land as a "Private Lake" for $2.95 million.

If I won the Lotto this would be my first purchase and I would donate it back to the state to be designated as a wildlife refuge.

As it stands some ultra-rich out-of-stater will be summering on land the American people gave away for a railroad and dine on trout that were raised on Montana taxpayer dollars.

Since I'm not quite old enough for the lottery yet (a few more year) I hope our moderator gets his 20 mil. I'd love a brand new DSLR. But If i wont it i thihnk that would prolly be my first purchase anyway, followed by college and then taking care of my parents loans....
