Subject: RE: Healing thoughts & prayers please (Nigel Paterson)
The afternoon of 23rd turned out to be one of those unexpected, serendipity moments. Here it is in a specially edited format: Bought Ann a 'good' (i.e. v. expensive!) watch several years needs repairing...visit jeweller who quotes 400.00...visit second jeweller who quotes 120.00...revisit first jeweller full of righteous indignation, but see the manager who just happens to be a watch specialist...manager inspects watch carefully & announces: "I can repair that myself now"...he disappears into their workshop at the back of the shop & reappears five minutes later with one, lookingasgoodasnew, cost: 0.00!
         Rounded off the day rather nicely! Mind you, there is probably one member of staff at the original jewellers whose next appraisal is not going to go too well!
         With Love to You All,
                                        Nigel & Ann.
