What would you do with $300M?

Well, I know what I would do. Retire. Sorta.

Of course, I’m talking about the Big Game drawing tonight. $325M+ jackpot.

Many folks say it’s a waste of money — a tax on the stupid. That may be, but the folks that tout that way of thinking will never have a chance to win it. I figure I’m gonna throw that money away on some kind of entertainment, so where it goes is somewhat unimportant. And frankly, it’s really only my business.

So, Darla and I drove across the border last night, stood in line for 20 minutes or so, and collected our tickets.

The biggest change in my personal life is that I would stop working “for the man”, and begin working for me. I dunno what kind of work that would entail — building antennas, woodworking, cabinetry, raising dogs…. who knows? But, I do know I would enjoy myself more, and would probably live a lot longer.

Our families would be well taken care of — Darla and I have already talked about that. Our sibs would be happy, as would our folks.

I’ve got my tickets, and am hoping for the best.
