Default Strike three

They say that bad things go in threes.
Well, I'd say its true.
First my husband is made redundant at Easter.
Then I hear that my job is being made redundant in the summer.

Now something even worse has happened.

Two guys knocked on my 84yr old father-in-law's door at 4am and when he opened it they forced their way in, beat him up and ran off with his jacket containing his keys, wallet, cheque book etc.

He's just got back from the hospital. He has bruised ribs etc. and had an angina attack from the shock but thank God it wasn't worse.

We're waiting for the locksmith to come and fit a new lock for him. That's 164 we could have done without having to spend.

Oh boy.

Oh no! So sorry to hear this. Hope he recovers quickly. The world stinks sometimes. I really hope things turn around quickly for you, my friend.

Oh no! I'm so sorry to hear that!

I'll keep you and yours in my prayers.
I was a sailor. I was born upon the tide and with the sea I did abide.
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow.
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed. But I am living still.
