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?

Luck of the Oirish...
NOT Oirish, but prolly the luckiest bigger alive! Get loadsa luck, just never can tell if it's good or not...
Examples: Crashed my best ever car (3rd party insurance & my fault!), broke my neck, didn't notice(!), healed perfectly & only found out it had been broken by pure chance, weeks later.
Gearbox broke on BMW bike in Hungary, no BMW bike dealers in Hungary (1993), RAC put us up in hotels; 1st one, a crappy commie era concrete heap, just happened to have four gorgeous strippers doing their routine just for us two wonkers in the bar. 2nd one, 5-star spa hotel in 'Pest. Flown home Club Class and they even repatriated the Beemer.
Unloved for years by the fairer sex, several failed r-ships (thank Buddha) only to leave me single and available to meet & marry the most gorgeous woman on the planet, who has just given me a wonderful son.
See wot I mean? Could go on at length, but sadly I'm a bit short right now...
