With this weeks Power ball reaching $425 Million, one has to ask. What in the heck would I do with about $275 million? Even after taxes, lets say I pocket $180 Million. The rule of thumb is $50K of interest on every million. So without spending a cent of the principal, I would make roughly $9 million a year. A YEAR! $9 MILLION! And I would still have $180 million in the bank. MY BANK! So last night while talking to the boatress, we talked about all the family things, setting aside a small trust for the kids, donating to some worthy causes, maybe some new carpeting… in our 3 new homes! Quite the job? NOPE, I love what I do.. Blow out .. in a good way….Woody Boater into a full fledged brand of clothing, a chain of fun lake side marina burger joints, and yes. A big fat 1950’s wood cruiser at each dock! ALL REDONE, new 5200 bottoms! Oh yeah! A 5200 bottom on a cruiser. First boat I would buy. Black Beauty! For sale here by the way. Then I would go on a shopping spree! Start my own Varnish brand! Publish Woody Boater header books, and posters. And most of all, throw the biggest dumbest, stupidest boat party ever done! Think “The Jerk” Party! Yes, even a big floating disco ball. And an entourage of fellow Woody Boaters to have some fun with… hire a director of varnish brushes, and a VP of Mahogany, which is different than the director of Oak frames. HAMMERTIME! OK, maybe I am getting a bit obscure in my references. Needless to say, I would have some fun until it was all gone. $9,000,000 a year! Dammmmm.. Do any of you out there have any better way for me to spend the money. Please, it’s burning a hole in my pocket already!
