Let's face it. $5,000 would be pretty sweet. It wouldn't change my entire world, but could make a nice summer. So, with that in mind. What to do with $5,000?

Food: 3,333 Costco Hot Dog and Soda combos, 715 Albertson's 8pc Fried Chicken, 1,666 scoops of ice cream from Cloverleaf Creamery, 1000 boxes of Giant Otter Pops, or perhaps 1,428 tamales from La Casita.

Fun: 104 trips to Zip the Snake, 90 lunch or dinner cruises on 1000 Springs Tours, 50 trips through the Blue Lakes Country Club golf course, 625 trips through Putters Mini Golf

Stuff: 14 kayaks like mine from Dick's Sporting Goods, 21 Giant Motr 20 bicycles from Cycle Therapy, 83 bean bag toss (corn hole) games from Bed Bath and Beyond, or 166 triple slider Slip 'N Slide Wave Riders.

The ideas are endless. Let's make it a fun summer!
