Enough money to maintain a nice lifestyle without having to work. Then I could dedicate all my time to doing what I want (learning, traveling, etc.).

Another interesting thread to start would be what people have on their "To Do" list before buying the farm.

1. The $$$ to be able to do whatever I want to restore my 150 year old house

2. Actually, my body was far better at 30 than at 21. I'd like that. I've worn glasses since I was a toddler and wouldn't know what to do without them!

3. A chauffeur. Never to drive again. Just pick up the phone and have someone to take me where I want to be, while I read a book.

4. A year in Europe.

5. A month or two in Asia

I agree with the above. Enough money to quit working - life offers so much to see and do while youre young and healthy to waste it doing someone else's work.

Time to spend with family.

Do something that I havent done before.
Explore.

Enjoy every day.

Good call on the glasses! I've worn glasses since the 4th grade and would love to get rid of them forever!!!

Been thinking about this the last couple of days. Here's what else has surfaced:

2. Enough money and energy to bring our 1880 Queen Anne Victorian house back to its original grandeur.

3. Lots of resources to hop back and forth visiting our children and grandchildren.

4. A long, long vacation with Buck in Europe.

5. A way to read all the books on my "yet to read" shelf...I mean bookcase. They've now filled much more than a mere shelf.
