After 49 years together Arthur Schumacher is still able to surprise his wife Jeanette. Arthur spent nearly a day traveling all over the area emptying the local banks of their $1 bill stashes. He even went 40 miles out of town before he finally accumulated over 150 bundles of $1 bills, totaling $17,885. Arthur isn't supposed to drive so their daughter drove him from bank to bank while he filled a cooler and a large cardboard box. On the day of their anniversary, Arthur told Jeanette to sit and close her eyes in the living room of their Raleigh, N.C. home. Arthur then proceeded to pile the money around her before she opened her eyes.
Today, the money is in the bank and Arthur is excited to find out how Jeanette will spend the anniversary gift. To read more about this Schumacher's and their marriage, read this ABC News article.
