Put it in the bank, receive almost no interest and hold it for the next generation.

BREATHE!

I would pay off my mortgage, dump this house of pain, dump this vile evil city I sadly retired too, and MOVE out of a state that falsely accuses YOU of SOMEONE elses crime! Time for some warm weather too.

If I got a sudden windfall of money, I'd put 1/4 of it in trust for my deaf adult child. Life is difficult for him and his future, like most people - but even more so - and is uncertain. I'd gift another 1/4 to the S.E.E. Center in Los Alamitos, California, which is a non-profit organization toward the development of literacy of deaf children. They have done so much for so many without the proper recognition they deserve. I'd take 1/4 of it and I'd pay off my mortgage. The last 1/4 I'd keep in reserve for retirement. If only.

I would buy the hosue I am living in or find one more updated and buy it. I would build a shop and double car garage all heated and Air conditioned. THe shop would have a vacuum system to keep it clean while cutting up wood and other soft mess making things. I don't have any bills I can't handle currently. I would also start a business which would get some Homeless off the street and give them work and dignity. I would also pay for my burial services and buy family burial plots as I don't believe any of my family members have cemetary plots. I would set some aside for those who I have never met and are related to me. If there was something left after that, I would buy an annuity so I had enough to continue paying for what I started. There would be help for people down on their luck. I have been known to share what I have with others.
