145 million. MILLION!

That ought to be enough to quit my job.:D

First thing I wouldnt do is, tell yall. NO. You cant borrow any money. First thing I would do is, hire a lawyer, Mr. "T", and a finacial expert. First thing Monday morning, they would drive me to Austin to get my check. The deposit of the check would be up to the finance guy. But I would need some pocket money. Once returning to Houston, 2 million would be deposited in my Daughters bank account. A new account. The ex has access to her current account. Thens it shopping time.

First stop, a Ford dealership. I want a brand new F250, 4 wheel drive extended cab, XLT truck. The brightest yellow they make. The truck would go straight to the best offroad shop in town. A 10" lift kit will be installed, and 44" ATs all around. While its there, a trailer hitch is a must. Ill need it for the Kenner 21' Vision, custom painted with "Flounder Flinger" on the sides. With a Texas flag, and a sheepy of course.

Next stop, a hotel room in Freeport. My lawyer will call a real estate agent, to start looking for my bay house. It has to be as close to Sams beach, and TTMB beach as possible. I dont want it a sub division. I need my privacy. I need loud music. The bay house will be tricked out. I want palm trees. And I want enough land for a vegatable garden. While this work is being done, Ill be in Cabo San Lucas for a month. When I return, I will start shopping for the music/party room. Top of the line guitars, basses, drums, recording equipment etc will be installed by Sammy Hagar himself.:D

I need a bike now. Shoot, everyone else is getting one. Ill go with a local fabricator. Not OCC or Jesse James. I want a fast bike. Not a hard to handle chopper. Something liks a Flat track bike. Oh, it will be a Harley. Chicks dig Harleys. And it will be yellow.

The rest is easy. Fish, ride, play, party....

Or, I just wasted $10 on lottery tickets.

Oh well. Its worth the 10 bucks, for the dream all this week.

Can I Still Sleep On Your Couch?

I was just going through your "shopping list" and it sounds very much like mine. When you're in Cabo, you'll likely meet Sammy Hagar there. He hangs down there alot I've heard.

For me, I'm thinking of Port Aransas. A newly remodeled condo up in the sky facing both the channel and the Gulf. I'm not buying a 60 foot boat. I'll be chartering the rest of my life. Too much trouble to clean, etc. When I get back from a trip, I go home to shower and rest while the owner cleans up and fillets my fish. I'll pick the fish up later.

TTMB friends will come and stay multiple days. No one is allowed back into a car under the influence, etc. Island taxi only. The gathering will be catered with unbelievable food. Each will be handed a welcome gift box at the door containing personnalized gifts from ocean tackle, rods and reels to graphs, GPS units to other nice surprises, etc. There will be five or six 60 foot boats waiting to be filled to take us out the next morning for two days of extreme competition only to return, rest and start over again. Prizes will be awarded.

The first big bash will become known as "ComeFrom?'s First Annual Intermural Gulf of Mexico Harvest and Consumption Conference." Shall I go on? This would be only the beginning. Keep fingers crossed. I bought five tickets. CF?:fireworks

Hate to tell you this but I already bought the winning numbers.

The first thing I would do is pay off all of my families debts and give them a small portion of my winnings "a given for most of us". After that 1mil is going to sca to buy back all of the shrimpers' licenses except for about 5 of them which will be placed along the coast at the places I fish but are restricted to the intercoastal and light offshore shrimping. Then I'd buy san luis pass so we can all still drive on it. After that I'm thinking a nice place in mansfield, florida, and "playa cabo or belize". My mansfield boats will be a trp powered 21' flats cat or 20' shallow sport and a 35' foot contender with 4 225 four strokes yammies. Florida will get a nice polling skiff and a 26' glacier bay and playa, cabo or belize will get a 55' hat and another polling skiff. I almost forgot, an air boat that will be keep in poc for duck hunting. Once all of this is acquired I promissed my other half that I'd get her a place in New York so she can go shopping which would probably account for the rest of the winnings.

Catn' Around

You reminded me of something I left out. Ive been thinking of this post for days, but in haste, I left out the beach issue. Im leaning towards hiring more lawyers to help Tim Henderson. Maybe that **** Degarin (sp) guy. That race horse guy.

If we have too.

If the glove doesnt fit..............

I Left A Few Things Out, Too....

I purchased a book 10 years or so ago title "Engineers Tax Guide" or something like that that says any income over $250,000.00 the tax rate is 39.6%. Who knows? The important thing is finding something called tax "shelters" or else your taxes in all upconing years could catch up to you and problems could arise whereby you might wind up in federal tax court and end up receiving $300,000 "chump change" each year for the rest of your life. That wouldn't be too bad, however.

Along with the "material" things I'd buy and the gifts to immediate family and those who gave me shelter when I needed it, would be house maids and servants (butlers and house "help"). They would do everything for me including cooking, cleaning, groceries, etc., etc. with the exception of certain personal hygenic cleansing required by all human beings. Maybe I'd have them do that, too. I'd then get a personal trainer to get me back to a healthier me. I'll fly out of Port A to Corpus then on to Alaska on a few Halibut trips, then to Europe and over to Austrailia and take some photos up-close and personal with a Great White Shark.....let's see.....what else....more after I win tonight. CF?

EP should be sold to Mexico. It's too far away from "Texas" in the first place. The winners are likely to be gone now and will prolly never look back. CF?
