Take a drive over to "Lip Ship" and "pick one out".

Then trailer up to Carolina and take "Too Old" for a ride to further inspire him.

Oh yeah, call my wife and let her know where I am.

Jeeeze Troutly you should be able to get the blow for free I think you need to count again because uncle sam would take at least a third of that. Now if you deal the blow...... Me, I would light my desk on fire and walk away, then head to Douglas and have Pete build me a rocket cat...140 min speed, then I would be broke and couldn't afford the insurance...then i would have to get another job and wish I had a million dollars...but I would still eat macaroni and cheese. Thats a great song Don.

Mitch Stellin........ You're correct about uncle sam with his 35-40%, but there are ways to slim him down and end with more in your pocket. I think I'd have to invest what's left, and take a long hard look at the whole picture. A 15-20% return on money is'nt hard to achieve as I've seen about 22% here last year.
So if you wisely invested, say, 600K, thats probably conservative leaving a little for play, at a 15% return,in 1 yr, you could see a profit of 75K. At 20%, around 120K or at least somewhere inbetween.

Granted, you could,nt go buy that new big Cig or OL but, would'nt it be nice to live off your investment.
I guess it's all up to the individual, and whats really important to them. It's nice not having to punch in & out on a clock.
Just my $.02
