A Thomasville man is celebrating his birthday with a big prize from the Georgia Lottery.
Wayne Sheets played the instant game $3,000,000 Taxes Paid and won a top prize of $3 million, taxes paid.
Sheets, an avid gardener, plans to purchase a farm with his winnings.
I’ll grow organic vegetables and raise free range turkeys and chickens for my personal use, he said. I have easy dreams.
Sheets, who recently celebrated his 57th birthday, purchased his lucky ticket in Thomasville. He scratched his ticket outside the store and returned to tell the store’s employees he had won.
The people in the store, and I danced a little jig, Sheets said.
