10 Things I Would Buy Right Now

1.  A Cadillac SRX fully loaded.  Why?  Have you ever ridden in a Cadillac?

2.  I would buy a house in Nashville, TN.  Why Nashville?  I’ve always said that if I ever had to live in a city, Nashville would be the place.  But if I have a home here and a home there, I can come and go whenever I please.  And, of course, if money is no object, a silly thing like work wouldn’t get in the way of me coming and going as I please.

3.  A condo in Denver.  I fell in love with Denver when I visited there several years back.  I almost took a job out in Denver before I took a job back here in town.  That would be a nice little getaway.

4.  I currently live on 40 acres that I don’t own.  I would immediately buy that up with an offer my landlord couldn’t refuse.

5.  Once I bought the land, I’d go about building my dream home.  You know, the one I wrote about a few weeks back.  Check it out here.

6.  Some sort of really awesome convertible.  Because I can.

7.  Lasik surgery so I could wear sunglasses in my new convertible.  I have super dry eyes so contacts are very uncomfortable.

8.  I would go to a grocery store in town and open a line of credit.  Everyone that came through that week would get free groceries.

9.  I would bring a Trader Joe’s to Fairfield.

10.  I would probably buy season tickets to all the sports teams in St. Louis.  Not because I’m a fan, but because it’s fun and close.

    • I can’t believe I didn’t put any guitars on my list. That’s just ridiculous. A condo in St. Louis was an option, but I’d already bought about 5 houses already…
