    Four things...

    1) Credit cards... gone

    2) New Ford F-150 Super Cab

    3) House in Zephyr Hills

    4) 3 of everything in that safe, and 3 safes to keep them in.

    First I would give back to my family for all they have done for me. I would want a modest home nothing fancy. I am a country girl. I don't do fancy. I would want a place where I could have a garden and grow my own food. I would want a 4x4 vehicle to get me around in the winter time. That is about it.

    Buy a nice piece of land with a nice but not extravagant home on it. New vehicles for the wife and me, a new motorcycle, a couple of atv's, and 3 of everything in the safe, and 3 safes to keep it all in.

    Then, I'd help out the inlaws and my family some.

    Then invest the rest where it will "make" money to insure I never have to work again.

    I'd by myself a nice, used truck, build a range, and keep the rest for retirement.
    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Buy a ranch, with at least 500 acres, horses, atv's, etc.

    If there is any money left, which there likely wouldn't be if I bought here in Florida, the rest would be invested.

    2) Get the Suburban into body shop for stripping and repainting
    3) Take my boys to a Texans game.
    4) "Bank" the rest.

    (In this order.)
    1. Avoid media/attention as much as humanly possible about our new found wealth. (This is more of an on-going thing than anything.)

    2. Debt. (Credit cards, car lien, wifes student loans.

    3. A homestead of some sort. Free and clear, all mine.

    4. Land. 'Nuff said.

    5. 2010 Ford F-250 Extended cab short bed FX-4, 6.4L Diesel, 6SP manual trans, boo-yah!

    6. Pay off my parents mortgage.

    7. Get with a financial advisor about a college fund for my daughter, and investments to keep me living good/better for the rest of my life, as well as the best local shooting range to purchase (I have one in mind.)

    8. Attempt to talk the wife into letting me buy a Taco Bell franchise


    9. Consult tattoo artist about new projects :)

    (EDIT: Of course I'd make a ridiculous firearms collection, but I feel it goes without saying I will be doing plenty of shopping at first as I could use new clothes/random stuff.)

    4. Buy RV and take the wife and kids to every MLB stadium in US and Canada for a game...

    I think...but ask me again in about an hour and it may change....
