ABERDEEN, Wash. - Every week since 1982, Roger Sauer's played the same numbers in Washington's Lotto game because he thought they were his lucky numbers.

As they say, good things come to those who wait.

Sauer's six numbers won him $3.2 million dollars in last Saturday's drawing.

He and his wife Darla are going to give some of the winnings to the Brady Fire Department and the American Cancer Society.

What did Sauer do his first day as a millionaire? He went to work.He's an English teacher at Elma High School and said he needed to get ready for his students who start school next week.

"I had all summer off, what else am I going to do?" he said.
