    The Strangest Things

    Always seem to happen to me. *sardonic smirk*

    My mother's veterinarian once said to her that if anything odd was going to happen, it would happen to her family, and he was right. There are many tales of oddness accosting those of my lineage, and now we have another.

    The new place was supposed to get inspected on Tuesday.

    It didn't happen.

    Know why?

    The housing inspector who was scheduled to check out our new place died Monday night!

    Now, I'm not trying to make light of things, he was a cherished co-worker there at the housing office, and he will be missed dearly by those that knew him well.

    But really, is Kismet so out to get us that she's come down to grasping at straws?

    Or is there something else, something deeper going on that maybe I should keep an eye out for?

    Are we maybe not meant to get this place we've got our eye on after all?

    Is there still yet something better around the corner, and that's why we are being made to wait by the powers that be?

    Dangling in the balance can be awfully annoying.

    Wow! I mean wow! I'm sorry the inspection didn't happen, but I'm more sorry for him. Think about it--he worked as a housing inspector until the day he died. I wonder if he had a passion for home inspection. I hope so!

    Well, gosh, so sorry the inspector died. But, perhaps it just means that another would be better. I'm sure everything will workout.

    Avery, Things like that really do leave ya thinking, but this was an older man (mid 70's-80's) and he was working this job as a part-time retirement thing two days a week.

    I don't think he'd be doing it if he didn't love the job, or at least the people.
