AR Couple Goes Fishing, Buys 2 Winning Lottery Tickets from Same Store
By Chad Love
You always dream about catching a big one when you go fishing, and boy, did this Arkansas couple land a trophy...
From this story on abcnews.com:
An Arkansas couple who set out for a day of fishing came home with quite the fish story: Two winning lottery tickets, including a $1 million prize. The Arkansas Lottery Commission says Stephen and Terri Weaver were on a fishing trip when they stopped to buy the first ticket at T-Ricks convenience store in Pangburn, about 60 miles northeast of Little Rock. They stopped at the same store on their way home and bought another ticket. That first ticket turned out to be a $1 million winner. And the second one netted the couple another $50,000.
Anyone ever gotten that lucky on a fishing trip?
