Unexpected Cash, How to split

Unexpected cash is coming our way.  Its not enough to pay off the house or the mortgage, etc..  

I was thinking I should split it evenly with MB, and remove it from the checking account so it doesn't get used up for regular stuff.  Problem is this:  We are in the midst of a change with Luke.  MB is planning to go back part time, but that'll mean a pretty big hit to our income this year.  I have a friend getting married in Sonoma later this year, two family trips in the summer, and my sister's wedding in DC in December.

I'd say put some money in savings for unexpected things, like these trips you mention. Then each take an equally decided amount and get something for youraselves. Oh yeah, and Luke gets some too. I damn sure hope if some is gonna go to trains, you should remember your HO roots while embracing your passion for live steam. Yeah, you hear what I'm saying. Build a complete rake of LNER carriages  ;):D/DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/tongue.gif

P.S. ~ This is kinda hard to really grasp without knowing the range.  I mean, is there any possibility of getting an S2 out of the deal?  /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/laugh.gif

I'd put $500 away, each of you take $200, luke gets $100. Oh yeah, and don't forget my 2 cents. Actually that leaves you and MB $199.99 each :D
In order to get that 1.5 mill you have to send a bank check for about $30k for processing fees. Then they will contact you and inform you of the meeting location, and then they'll give you the briefcase with the 1.5 mil. Of course they'll first wait for your check to clear, and then it's your turn to wait... and wait... and wait...   Please, don't ask me how I know this  :cool:

I read an article on this a few years ago, and it had surfaced in the town I used to live in over in Scotland. Someone local had fallen for it, and was to meet at this "Bank" in Thurso. They were given the address. Turns out the "bank" was in fact a small chip shop. Ohhhhh, bummer
