Our hostess for the entire month of February is Molly at one of my very favoritest-named blogs, Return of the White Robin. This is her assignment for this Monday..."imagine that you are the recipient of a large sum of money, say 10 million dollars (to account for inflation). Tell us what you would do with the gift and how would your lifestyle change."
This is easy for me because I dream this dream every time I buy a lottery ticket. When I win, or when someone gives me $10 million, I will do the following things:
1. Pay off all my bills
2. Give all of my children a lump sum to do with as they wish, with the understanding that there will be no more.
3. Buy a house in the Hill Country of Texas, probably in Fredericksburg, where you can still shop at Dooley's, an honest-to-goodness old-fashioned variety store.
4. Endow a scholarship fund at St. Anthony's where my grandson started his school life and where they love him still.
5. Use the remainder to start a fund for the permanent endowment of our local lending library. I cannot think of a better gift to give the world...and myself.
