This is a question Unexpected Good Fortune

Travelling through Seattle a good 15 years ago, I remembered an old friend I used to blow up Action Men with. We were bored, nothing to lose , so I looked him up in the phonebook. He was the only one of that name in there. "Come and stay," goes he.

Me and my mates were living in a car at that point so a bed was a novelty. After searching for a while, we rock up to a very posh mansion on Puget Sound with its own Helipad. "Come flying," goes he.

Has your luck held out recently?

The Weekly News.......
.....was a newspaper which was essentially the first "Chat" magazine in circulation. It was more of a rag-mag than a newspaper; loads of odd articles concerning family crisis, and a two-centre page spread of puzzles and the Weekly Competition. The prizes were in fairness crap; was like the kind of things you see on "The Price Is Right", but grannies all around the country entered them every week, such as me nan.

One week, somehow me nan won, and had her name printed in the paper. She'd won......drum roll please.....duh duh du duuuhhhhhh!!!!! A Soda-Stream!!!!! She didn't need it, so she give it to us :)

But....unexpectedly...the newspaper competition judge must've been on holidays for a while (or got fired), so the following week...lo and behold, she won....duh duh du duuuhhhhhhh!!!!! A collection of "Constable" porcelin.

Then the following week....duh duh du duuuhhhhhhh!!!!! Some selection of dishes.

Then again....duh duh du duuuhhhhhhh!!!!! A new Deep-Fat Frier.

Then AGAIN....duh duh du duuuhhhhhhh!!!!! A collection of writing pens.

Then finally once more....duh duh du duuuhhhhhhh!!!!! Season one on VHS of "Baywatch" (nice one gran *warms hands*).

Once a week a parcel of goodies would turn up, and once a week we'd be given the goodies. Nice one nanny!
