    Mega Millions 105 Million Tonight - What Would You Do?

    I would buy the biggest piece of land that I could, somewhere with trees and wide open spaces.
    I would construct large buildings with heated floors.
    I would go to every mattress and furniture outlet so I could find and buy beds and couches and comfy chairs.
    I would hire a full time Vet.
    I would hire a special cook.
    I would buy rope toys and squeaky toys.
    I would buy rawhide's and kong balls.
    I would buy catnip and rubber mice.
    I would buy cages for hamsters and bunnies.
    I would build paddocks for horses and llamas.


    AND THEN

    I would create a home for every animal who needs one and would make sure that none of them are ever turned away.

    If I won the lottery, I would create heaven.

    Once I spoke the language of the flowers,

    Once I understood each word the caterpillar said,

    Once I smiled in secret at the gossip of the starlings,

    And shared a conversation with the housefly

    in my bed.

    Once I heard and answered all the questions

    of the crickets,

    And joined the crying of each falling dying

    flake of snow,

    Once I spoke the language of the flowers. . . .

    How did it go?

    Hmm, sounds like a good beginning for Pettalkville! And old thread, but still a goodie - you'll see volunteers for many jobs there!

    Yeah, Pettalkville sounds like a cool place. I just spent some time wandering around there. But I don't think I would want to set up there. Maybe right outside the town limits?

    It seems that the animals in Pettalkville would already have a home. I want to build a place for the unwanted. Sort of like a Boy's Town for critters. Someplace where you would never have to worry about someone responding to an ad for a "forever home" you would know you already had one. Oh sure, a human could visit and invite you to come and live with them, but you would not have to worry about it if it didn't happen. They would have their "forever home" for as long as they wanted it.


    I would build a big hotel where people could come and stay for free, as long as they agreed to share their bed with a dog or cat who never had the chance to know what it like to roll over at 3AM and have their belly scratched.

    That's my fantasy - being able to provide and live in a place that they would think of as heaven.

    Of coarse, all the human citizens of Pettalkville could come by at any time if they had any extra hugs and cuddles to spare

    OK, nobody won

    Nobody won so my fantasy is still alive. Now it's up to 122 Million. So my dream can even be bigger.

    But really, whats your dream?

    It's an obscene amount of money, I can't even imagine what on earth I'd do with all that dough, but I WOULD get myself a couple nice homes, maybe a summer home and a winter home somewhere. I'd load up my favorite non-profit organizations with more money than they had ever seen before, I'd buy a huge plot of virgin land somewhere and just keep it untouched so my children would always be able to see what a virgin forest looks like. I'd never again have to worry about affording heart worm pills for my precious fur kids again! I'd be able to afford putting my beautiful children into the most highly rated private school. I'd get to travel any where and at any time, my gosh would that be fun! Maybe I should go buy a lotto ticket, huh?

    Find an old style Hummer and a trailer, toss a bike, atv and generator on it.
    Go to the outdoor/sporting goods store and buy a tent and all the accessories, then go on vacation for a month-with the Edster.

    Buy my stupid sibs out of my parent's property--in change-not pennies, but in quarters, nickels and dimes.

    I'd pick out a few animal charities to donate to, like the National Search Dogs training center in Ojai, CA.

    Then do some charity. I have some really special things I'd like to do...Not like the TV programs where they give people a house because they need one.

    I'd pay for education-give grants to kids who WANT TO BE IN SCHOOL, then when they finish? Give them a bonus...

    Oh, then go to one game at the home of every baseball, basketball, hockey and football team in America.

    oh, build a shooting range in my backyard. I have always wanted to go to the Olympics to compete in target shooting. Yes, I think I could.

    It would be enough to not ever have to worry about money for me and my kids. I would retire and buy a home on a beach somewhere and not worry about the money to send both my kids to college.

    Like Richard says I like the idea of sending some well deserving kids to college, what a great idea.
    don't breed or buy while shelter dogs die....

    I'm a little too young to "gamble" but whatever -

    -Allow my parents to retire and set them up in a nice house of their choice.
    -Pay off my sister's & brother college tution because I'm such a nice sibling.
    -Set aside enough money to get my PhD in Marine Biology/Science.
    -Get a buddy for Mikey from a shelter of course, and probably start my own rescue while I'm at it!
    -Give 3.3 million $ to the MCSPCA so they could afford to pay off their the last of what they owe for the beautiful renovations they did - all for the animals
    -Donate to charities, a few specific ones like Haiti Reparations and such.
    -Do something fun that's Star Trek related - like go to the big convention in Las Vegas.
    -Pay off any or all debt my family has.
    -Get some awesome things for Mikey to enjoy, including a new giant backyard for him to run around him but I guess that would go along with the house.
    -Give some money to my FFA chapter.
    -Take a ride in the "Vomit Comet" at NASA.

    I don't know what else, because honestly, I have alot of crazy things I wanna do...

    Ya' gotta play to win - and I never do either - so I guess I'll just be thankful for what I have.

    Hmmm - a house on the oceanfront sure would be nice tho..............

    Or I could even buy my own lighthouse and live in it - a dream from my childhood.

    I'm not much of a gambler either. Unless you consider $1 twice a week a gambler. And then only when it goes over 50 Million.
    I guess I just like to dream about what I COULD do with the money.
    We all have our fantasies, and I guess I'm curious about what other pet people dream about.

    Thanks to all who have taken the time to share their dreams.

    I would also have several different homes in various parts of the world.
