They say bad things happen in threes, and the events that have unfolded recently seem to back that up.
Firstly our champion class show puppy, Hugo, took ill, he was rushed to the vets where he stayed for 3 days, we was kept informed of his condition on a regular basis. we then recieved a call from the vets in the early hours of the morning asking us to have a chat and come to a decision to end his suffering.
I had only just got over the past few days when kick in the teeth number 2 happened.
I woke up to a message that rehersal for the latest show had been cancelled due to theatre group leader Bill Rodgers having a Heart Attack and was having a stay in hospital, at first i thought this was a joke as only the week before that Bill thought he was actually having a heart attack.
Kick in the teeth number 3 came just a couple of days after Bills admission to hospital
I was informed that a kind, caring and generous man had passed away, this news was the most shocking of all. The man once known as Champagne Charlie, the man who always had a funny story to tell, the man who also had no problem with telling things straight. Nigel Webster.
Nigel, you have given me valuable life lessons in very short conversations, you have shown me that there IS light at the end of the tunnel, even if you can't initially see it. You will be very sadly missed by alot of people. Sleep tight.
Although the news of nigels passing saddened me, i have to say it is not all bad and a few good things have happened.
Bill enjoyed his stay in hospital, but decided a heart attack isn't going to stop him, and he is now back with us and better than ever.
We didn't have to make a decision to end Hugo's suffering, because he is fighting fit and just about back in top form. The day Hugo took ill was also the day of the monthly wrestling event at x-church and i managed to get a photograph with none other than Nick Aldis AKA TNA wrestler Magnus, someone i have been watching on tv since his humble beginnings on Gladiators UK as Oblivion.
It seems clear to me that you can never take life for granted, take each day as it comes because you never know when your last day is going to be. It might be tomorrow, It might be next week or even next year, but until it happens i going to stick with the following theory.
I AM GOING TO LIVE FOREVER
