The old saying goes"bad things come in threes" if so I've got two down and one more to go.


These past few days I feel as if I've been jinxed . First my dog wasn't acting like his normal happy self so I take him (all 87 lbs) to the vet. He has had some kind of trauma (a possible fracture the xray didn't show a break) to his tail I have no idea how this happend. But thank goodness he is better and will have a full recovery.

Yesterday I'm sitting behind a truck at a stop sign waiting for my turn the guy in front of me puts it in reverse and hits me. Nothing serious and nobody was hurt. But still have to deal with some slight vehicle damage

I'm wondering what is going to happen next. But on the positive side if it doesn't get any worse than this I can handle it

The last time those two things happened to me, I got an earache on my shin. So, bad things do come in threes.

My dad used to always say things happened in threes. I'm not superstitious, so the theory doesn't hold water for me.

My mean older sister, her hubby, and their snarky, nippy little chihuaha!! In some cases, bad things happen in threes. I am not superstitious either. Poor little 'huaha is just a canine clone of sis....

Bad things happen to good people

Be happy that things are happening. when they stop happening that is called death. I am positive that their is a life after death but since this conversation has to do with the time we have here on earth I will limit my part of the discussion to that.

I’d have to say no. It seems that we always hear of this “things in three” occurring but in reality all that is happening is that we “look” for the next occurrence to happen. Eventually we see three, and if we continue to look we’ll see four or five or six.
