Luckier Than Grandma?

When it comes to church picnics & luck, my mom is one of the luckiest people I know. It seems like she is always winning something from the raffles of those she & dad attend. And I can hardly remember a time win she has left a picnic without first having won a cake from whatever kind of "cake stand" is there. Unfortunately (for my dad anyway), this luck does not seem to carry over to lottery tickets or casino boats! :)

Yesterday, we attended a local church picnic. While I was retrieving Luke's bag from my parents who had kept him overnight, I told Scott to take Luke to the cake stand to waste time & maybe, just maybe we would win a cake, but probably not since we usually don't. I came walking back around the building with Luke's bag looking for Scott at the cake stand, but they were nowhere to be seen. Suddenly, I heard my name being called & there was my husband & son walking towards me with...2 CAKES!

I could not believe it & asked Scott if they had actually won both of them (what other scenario I thought had occurred~I have no idea :) Scott said "Yep, 2 quarters, 2 pulls...2 cakes. Luke might be luckier than Grandma when it comes to winning cakes!"
Now if only his 'powers' carry over to lottery tickets & casino boats... ;)

I say buy a lottery ticket and have him touch it, his luck may just work.
