I have been assured, by people who purport to know these things, that bad things come in threes
The scum bags!
Bad thing's come in ones!
One after the other ... forever!
I seem to have a target, as it were, on my back where bad luck is concerned.
As those of you who have been with me for some time may remember, I have always had car troubles. Just when one problem was been dealt with, another one reared it's ugly, oil smeared head. You may also recall that I wrote about damage to house and property caused by high winds. And of course there was also the recent case of my dog Sym's lymphoma.
Well, there is still no silver lining to my black cloud of bad luck; no ray of sunshine seeking to warm the cockles of my heart (whatever that means).
You may already be wondering 'What's happened now?'. I can hear the creaking of many (how many readers do I have?) swivel chairs as clearer screen views are sought.
Here's the latest!
My tyres need replacing ... far earlier than anticipated and without achieving the mileage they should have done.
Over night (Saturday to Sunday) there were once again gale force winds battering our house and garden (it may well have battered the homes and gardens of others. I didn't notice) and quite severe damage was caused to our fence (a rather large piece of which narrowly missed our kitchen window).
And, of course, there is Sym! His recent course of treatment resulted in only partial remission.
Now ... that's only three, I hear you say. And you would be right ... I can count.
But there's also ...
Sox (older dog) ... Ill
The lawnmower ... fuel leak!
The strimmer ... busted!
The hedge trimmer ... locked solid!
The DVD-recorder ... dead as a dodo!
The wife's PC ...well, OK! I killed that one.
And it goes on and on and on and on and on and ....
Need I say more?
Yes! They lied! They really did!
