$500 million, cash payout of $327 million...roughly $179 million after taxes...MsGilmore would require $150 million for new shoes and purses, guess I would invest the rest and live quietly...

I would hire an attorney and an accountant ASAP.

I would establish a foundation for charitable giving and hire some family members and friends to run it.

I would pay off all my own debt as well as that of all my siblings and probably give them money as well.

I would establish trust funds for my niece and nephew with the stipulation that they need to earn a college degree to access any of the money.

I would build my dream home on as many acres as I could get contiguously in my area. I would build a fabulous horse barn and an indoor (and okay, an outdoor) riding arena and probably add a horse, or six. smile

And finally, I'd whisk away my fellow RRs for a getaway because I will have enough money for bail then. wink

First - Hire an attorney and become a ghost. Then....

1. God gets his first, thanks Dude.
2. Retire debt, mine and the families.
3. Set up investment trusts. I plan on living on interest forever.
3. Trusts for the kids and grandkids. No touchy touchy for awhile.
4. Set up a self sustaining (hopefully) trust for charitable giving.
5. Buy something stupid

I saw a special on those - too cool! There was a group of ladies who had done this and traveled together. They were really creative.
