Default The third thing

I found out last week that I need knee surgery. This is not exactly a surprise, as they should have done it two years ago, but the first surgeon was a tool. This will mean six months of rehab.

On Saturday the furnace died after 20 years. Fortunately it was only slightly below freezing on the weekend and I still had some wood for the airtight fireplace. The furnace got replaced yesterday, but it was no bargain. :-(

Today we lost the internet, TV and Phone. I suspect the fibre connection couldn't handle all the water in the ground. I know losing the internet is a minor annoyance, but I'm counting it as the third thing. :-)

All I can say is those are things that would make me frown

That's more than enough. As they say, things come in threes so hopefully
all will go well and be sorted.
