    Definitely some more fabric, but would hold out a little to go to lunch with my sister. When we go shopping, she buys almost every time because she knows I cannot always afford it.

    I'd give it to my husband. He is always so generous to everyone but himself. Or I'd buy him a massage, he won't go on his on, but he so deserves to be pampered.

    Hmmm....I'm trying to think how I could spend it so that the most people enjoy it....I think I would go to the grocery store and give it to the manager (I know and trust him)...and tell him to randomly give $25.00 to 6 different people when they are checking out. Oh...and he is not allowed to tell anyone where it came from. 8-)

    Well, need to get some glasses, but probably would go to Dick's Sports Shop and get some winter boots, like my daughter bought for winter hiking last year. ANd some cat nip for my Fiona.

    I'd send it to the American Cancer Society to go towards
    finding a cure for cancer. I've lost so many friends in
    the last few years to that darned disease.

    LOL - Tiffany, I can honestly say that if I wanted an honest opinion from someone about something, you would be the first one I'd ask !!! I know I would get an honest answer.

    Hmmmm very interesting thought....my first thought was food shop but I think I would use part of it to give to a needy family w/ kids the rest would go toward shipping the quilts I made for my kids in Ks.

    I would probably buy something for the studio. I am looking for an old round tub Maytag from the 1920's or 30's, or a few more sewing machines (vintage of course :mrgreen: ).

    Some of my family members will tell you it isn't always a benefit to get an honest answer out of me. :oops: I don't ever mean to be cruel and I hate the thought of hurting someone's feelings, so I do my best to be diplomatic!

    Friend: Do you like my new dress?
    Me: (Undiplomatic) - Ew, no! It makes you look fat. :shock: (Not the correct response!)
    Me: (Diplomatic) - It doesn't look as flattering on you as your black and red dress but it does set off your eyes. (Unless it doesn't, then I can't say that. :| )

    Tires for the car. They are so bald right now that people actually come up to us and tell us that we need new tires. It's really embarrassing.

    I had a mechanic checking something else out on my car and
    he cut his hand on the metal sticking out of my tire!! It was on the side I couldn't see so I didn't know it. He told me to go get
    new tires first and then bring the car back and not to drive far on those tires.

    Oh, I can totally relate! My poor car is so bad people stare when I drive. :oops: Also, the speedometer, gas guage, and the lights on the dash don't work, and the transmission is going out and it leaks. Now, in my defense, I got it from my SIL in this condition so it isn't my fault. I figure I'll drive it until it dies and hopefully by then I can afford to get something else. As long as it gets me back and forth to my guild meetings, Bees, and the quilt store I figure I'm doing good! :lol:

    I'd put it toward plane tickets to bring my DD and DGD to us for Christmas. Rat fink hopefully soon-to-be EX-SIL revealed he'd been having affair for 7 months with mother of 5 who is also local politician (hopefully about to be EX P)3 weeks before before DD's birthday. Shall I say GF's name and the town? The word is already out, but I probably don't want to be acused of slander etc etc - - -

    OK...this thread is haunting me. You asked what I would do if I had $150.00....I made a comment that I would help people in the grocery. While that is a nice thought....I felt kinda like I was "all hat....no cattle". The fact is that I do have some cash I can afford to use. So what is stopping me?...I've decided that nothing is. Today I started looking for my candidates....I will be sharing some cash surprizes with a few people who appear to need it. I can't do 6 people this year, but I can start with a few. So thanks ya'll for making me feel like you were calling me on this one.
