The One Big Item You'd Buy if You Won the Big One

Good morning, folks, and a fine morning it is. Outside, a pale blue sky welcomes dawn! I really had a lot of fun with my last blog entry about silly things we think. Oh, how I chuckled to hear what goes on in other people's brains. Glad to know I'm not the only harmless nut out there. So today, I'm asking people, "What is the one big item you'd buy just for yourself if you won the big one. Leave a comment for a chance to win a copy of my ebook, The Shadow of the Unicorn: The Legacy. Might be a good idea since the sequel is nearly cooked to a fine golden brown in the oven.

Here's what I'd buy. This is a Tesla, the greenest car there is. No gas, and travels 400 km on one charge. Did you know that the engine of this car was invented in 1885 by one of the greatest geniuses  of this planet - Nikola Tesla. A brilliant, but relatively unknown inventor until someone decided to actually build a car with his technology! And check out the doors! Starting at only $92,000! Now - what would you buy?

  1. Love your car!
    I'd buy myself a nice little condo near Disney World so I could visit my favorite place whenever I wanted. :)

  3. A new wall and door jamb for my kitchen. I'd better explain. I have a dog with separation anxiety. Usually I take her everywhere. She comes in to church with me, she's the only dog allowed in my mum's house. She's fine in the car. But if I leave her at home when I go out, she panics and wrecks the place. Last August I had a hospital appointment and it was too hot for her to stay in the car so I had no choice. I shut her in the kitchen with music, special air scents that's supposed to make dogs feel good, the works. When I came back, she had taken the door jamb off the kitchen door and the plaster off the wall, leaving a gaping hole through to the wall on the other side. Since I'm not earning anything at the moment, it's had to stay like that. If I won the lottery... or wrote a best seller... or found a billionaire...

    1. Wow! I remember leaving a big dog overnight and he ripped the molding off the door as well as chewing the door knob out of shape. And it's still like that.

  4. I'd buy 2 tickets to London for my DH and me and tour the British Isles. Especially now that I've met so many authors from across the pond. Toodles. (Do they really say that in England?)

    1. I would love to stay at the Coronado Hotel in San Diego. So pretty and so old. Did you know that's where King Edward met Mrs. Simpson? And apparently Thomas Edison was the electrician of the hotel.

  6. Good Morning Suzanne, I have a big family, consisting of 5 children that are married so also their 5 spouses, and almost 8 grandchildren, not forgetting my wonderful husband. I would love to pay for a family vacation like maybe a cruise over to Hawaii with lots of excursions. What a great memory that would be. :)

    1. That would be a good memory. My parents took the entire family, grandkids and all to Alaska for their 50th wedding anniversary. It was so fun. A year later, my father died of cancer. I cherish the memories and the photos.

    Oh, what fun things, people have written!! I'm after a Lear Jet, or a Gulfstream, so I can fly whenever I want around the world. Also, a big old Grand Dame of a house in New Orleans. And another home in Hawai'i. And a 650 white Beemer. I've got a list. :-) LOL. I know what I'm after. Ooh, I'd love to stay at the Coronado too Suzanne! So romantic looking! Aloha Meg :-)

  9. What a great post, Suzanne! And fun answers. It took me a minute. I'd buy a cottage on the Maine Coast--mid to southern coast. Big enough the kids and families could all come viisit. I'd live there from May to September. Now there are problems with this dream--the least of which is lack of funds--oh, but you did say we won the big one. LOL LIke how you think. The problem is I don't think DH wants to go and be gone that long. And we'd miss seeing the grands when they were out of school. But then I did say they could come visit. :) I'll have to work on DH. Want to be prepared if I ever win the big one. :)
