Howdy from Texas!  I would absolutely LOVE to pass along the $ to my awesome husband and daughter for a day of fishing!  They have both been so dedicated to job and college, along with doing much more!  They both deserve a day of relaxation and fun!  Thank you so much for the chance to share!  Stay strong and well!

I'd buy some new plants for our front yard from the local nursery to help support a local business.  And, then stop by a local restaurant and get lunch before an afternoon of yard work -- another local business to support.

I would go for a paddle in my kayak on the Buffalo River and then stop for a pint and a nice lunch at Gene McCarthy’s. Afterwards, I would take a hike at Tifft Nature Preserve, and then stop for an ice cream cone at Churn.

If I won $200, I would take my two close friends out to lunch, then to the movies, then to get a manicure and pedicure. Then we would go for drinks and relaxation for the rest of the evening! No kids! No men!

If I would be so blessed to win, I would do whatever my mind leads me to do as one blessed to be free of the hustle and bustle of life in general.  My greatest joy will be to go to the park and watch the happy children at play. I will also reflect on the beauty of my life thus far and how I hope to progress in the future as a nurturer to all in whatever capacity I can.  I love sharing my joy!!!

If I was selected as a winner, I would take a much-needed day at a spa for a massage, facial, great healthy food, and total R&R! My Mom, also an AARP member, recently transitioned and this would be a much-welcomed reward to heal from it all.

My dream day off would be to get our little vintage camper out of storage, and take a road trip to one of our state parks. It would be great to find a quiet spot, go hiking to seek out wildflowers and bird watch, and then relax at our campsite for a nice, simple meal around the campfire. The day off would extend overnight because some of the best sleeping is done in the camper!  After a long, isolated winter, the idea of being in nature with my husband and dog sounds like a wonderful dream. Have the $200 would easily cover the cost of gasoline, food, park entry and a campsite. There might even be enough left over to allow for a special bottle of wine from a local winery.

I would spend the money and the day to visit my daughter who I have not seen since Christmas 2019. The covid separations have been frustrating and painful.  Life is short and I would meet her somewhere safe where we could be in a clean, sanitized location such as a beach . I live near DC and she's in NJ for her job.  I miss her so much. The money would pay for travel costs.  It's been very painful to be separated from our adult children and grandchildren.

I would like to have this money to buy groceries for my family of 5! We are still recovering from the Texas winter disaster so this money will help us replenish our freezer and refrigerator. Also any left over, we will pay bills. Thanks so much
