  1. If I won, first I would probably have a heart attack, and then I would spend the rest of my life recuperating and Thanking God overlooking the water.

  2. I'd tell my daughter, "start packing". I've been wanting to move to NC for years!

  3. I would cry, and then I will probably be smiling from ear to ear for ever after.

  5. My family of 7 would spend one of our first family vacations there. My husband is a teacher and we have 5 children. Vacations are few and far between. We would love to have a place to go for some wonderful family. time.

  6. Live in it. Enjoy it with our family. Get to know the surrounding area. It's good to make new friends

  7. Wow, I'd be so appreciative! I would gather our family, some beach toys and get there as fast as possible. It's a perfect home.

  8. I would thank the Lord for the beautiful home and thank all of the people who worked hard in creating such a wonderful place. Then my husband and I would invite our 7 children and their spouses over to celebrate!

  9. I would love to win this, as I've been looking to buy a set for a party we have coming up.

  10. I've always thought it polite to learn at least a few words in the language of the place you are going. So while we are all waiting to find out who is going to go, here's a tutorial for all of us Dingbatters. Yep, I'm one too even though my Mom's people are all from Down East. Locals, it is a nice piece, done on Ocracoke. Really an amazingly intact accent after so many years.

    • Thanks Lulu that was a fun video and informative for this old dingbat ????

    • DingbatTER. I love those accents. They tell of the history of that area from a very long time ago. And this piece was nicely done. My grandmother would not have been one. But my mother was born inland, and so was I, so here we are.

    • Thanks lulubelle, that was a cute video, I guess we all have our strange expressions. I lived in Texas until I moved to Fl. in '82, I probably have more strange southern expressions than I can even remember. One thing I think is funny, in Florida, a native is a Florida cracker, don't ask me why. Dingbat is something I picked up from Archie Bunker years ago, means something totally different.:D

    • I think what is so nice about this area is that you still hear Southern ENGLAND in their accents. So many families there who go back to the time the area was still settled, and relatively cut off from the rest of the state. I'll leave it to a local to explain dinbat versus dingbatter. I have no idea.

    • deleted, I think 'dingbat' is the same in all parts of the country?
