The stuff friends are made of
Man has no greater love than to return a winning lottery ticket given to him by mistake, says the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. A man in Maryland purchased a $5 scratch-off lottery ticket, misread it and gave it to his pal to enter into the state’s second chance My Lottery Rewards contest. The friend gave the ticket a second look and saw that it was, in fact, a top prizewinner worth $50,000. So, he did what any self-respecting friend would do; he gave it back to his pal.
An early Christmas for needy kids
Sadly, Toys “R” Us is no more. The iconic toy store chain shut down all of its stores, nationwide, on Friday, June 29th but not before one of its stores in Raleigh, NC made its last big sale. According to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC], a last minute shopper showed up at the eleventh hour, as they say, and bought up a million dollars worth of toys. He didn’t want his identity to be revealed because the anonymous customer turned out to be a regular Santa Clause who distributed his haul to needy children.
She’s not heavy; she’s my wife
As many of you probably already know, the 23rd World Wife-Carrying Championships were held recently in Sonkajarvi, Finland. And, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC], 53 brawny hubbies from 13 countries, including the United States, shouldered their responsibilities and carried their wives for an hour-long trek over a treacherous course. The crowds cheered as Vytautas Kiorkliauskas of Lithuania carried his wife Neringa piggyback over the finish line in first place.
