Winning the Lottery

North Shore of Oahu, February 2015 

I didn't win the Power Ball Lottery, if I had, I'd be on my way to someplace that looks like this, instead of the office.  Yes I bought a ticket or five, and will probably buy them again.  I know the odds are greater that I will wake up dead in the morning than waking up as a Power Ball winner, but hey.

In a way, I am glad I haven't won.  Don't get me wrong, the economic security of a billion-dollars would be nice, I would only go back to the office once, and get out of the winter, but the changes would not end there.  That kind of money, especially as a windfall would change a lot of things I probably don't want to change.  I like having a home (or two) that I can find my way around without a map. I don't worry about security, or people trying to exploit me, with that kind of money these become a part of daily life.  I could really use a housekeeper, but I don't really want to deal with a household staff. One car is enough of a headache to deal with (though I would look good in a red Ferrari convertible.)

What color Ferrari would you drive?


  1. mos def red, the power color. and spouse didn't win either, so we both went to work yesterday. have a good weekend!

  2. Ferrari....white or navy blue.

  3. I told Someone (who bought a ticket at the last minute) if he won it was all his. If word got out I have won I'd be sued by everyone. Count me out.
