My farming friend phoned me on my mobile today to tell me that as a start to the new year his pickup had just trashed its engine, his shed roof had collapsed due to weight of snow and that the rubble had wrecked my silage mower that was in his shed. He began his phone call with a minute long string of curses directed at me....Why....because of his dreadful string of bad luck on new years day....NO.....because he is 15" deep in snow......NO......because my dial-in tune when he phoned my mobile was..........Always look on the bright side of life by the Pythons.
It made me laugh till I was sore and made a brilliant start for my new year....assuming his insurance covers my mower.
All true and happened today.
