    HELLO:
    senior smoke has a bad cold tonight. as i am looking outside here in wisconsin the temperature is falling and the snow is coming down. I am day dreaming and wondered what i would do if i ever won a lottery? first of all i would call my employer and give them a 2 week notice, it's the right thing to do. pay off my house. i would put in a new drive way. i would purchase the biggest cadillac i could find and have them put in a sun roof. i would purchase the bigest cigars and at night all you would see are my ashes coming out of the sun roof. i would buy a pre 64 model 12 pigeon grade and a new or mint perazzi tm1. i would purchase a semi full of federal paper shells. i would purchase one of those fancy mobile homes and travel across the country to shoots. i would probably help out gun clubs that are hurting. and to my best friend luther ward, I would give him a crisp $100.00 dollar bill.

    This is fun. I would buy a Prevost motorhome, hire a driver and head to Ohio to be fitted for a Devault Infinity. I would then stop at every trap club on the way back to Colorado. When I got home, I would act humble. I can tell we are getting toward the end of winter. gyrine

    Would I get half of the money after my Federal and State Income taxes??? I know a lot of welfare receipients would be counting on me to do the right thing. I'd take them all to lunch at the local mission and they could sing in choir afterwards.

    If I won the lottery in the near future, and it was a big payoff, I'd buy the railroad that runs to Coos Bay, Oregon, fix it up, and become a railroad tycoon.<br>
    <br>
    Then probably become a philanthropist, and have some fun.<br>
    <br>
    Get a modest home in the country with a large shop so I could work on vehicles.<br>
    <br>
    Do a lot of hunting.

    As far as buying, repeat, buying, it'll be in this particular order: an Aston Martin DB9, a Range Rover Supercharged, a Patek Philippe Perpetual Calendar, a Patek Phillippe lady Annual Calendar, another Steinway model A (so my wife and daughter won't fight over who plays first), a pair of Abbiatico Salvinelli Sovereign 12ga & 20 ga., a pair of Fabbri 12Ga & 20Ga.

    I'd sell everything the above replaced.

    Then, join the basic membership of NetJets, buy a small condo in Nice for the summer.

    Now, if I don't win the Lottery soon, I'll be disappointed. :)

    I'd help some people out that I know deserve better than the cards that they have been dealt. Then I would propose to my fellow club members that we bulldoze our clubhouse, as I am making a donation to replace it. This would all coincide with my compound being built. KEEP OUT! lol

    I would have to take my choice of-

    (A) Spend it all for down payments.

    (B) Pay it on my bills---as far as it would go.

    A ticket to New Zealand, a suitcase full of cash, and a hoard of gold in a bonded warehouse.

    (That's phase 1)

    If the jackpot was one of them multi-jillion dollar whoppers, I'd spend the first $100 buying three senate rinos and all the liberals in congress.

    I'd have my libs pass me some specious, spurious, and fallacious "Homes for the Homeless" legislation which they would proclaim as vital and necessary to rescue the public from the worst economy since the depression. It would in fact, do nothing but provide a fat tax subsidy for any lotto winning ts.commer that buys a new Prevost.

    I'd provide some genuine economic stimulation by creating several new jobs including Prevost driver/tow vehicle chauffeur, executive chef, motor coach maid, and gun toter.

    First I'd buy Gene a spiffy new Fjestad's, then I'd fly him to a gun auction somewhere outside of Iowa. Finally, I'd buy him a drink and we'd have a few laughs (for some reason, I'm pretty sure he's a drinker). -Gary

    I would have to get a motorhome and hit the trapshooting circuit. Stock it with the best single barrel Parker I could find, then find an "Elsie" for shooting doubles. Cases full of new shells in the basement of the motorhome.

    I would also like to have a kegerator in the motorhome so I could have a cold one after a hard day of shooting.
