..In My Absence.
My friends and I have a long standing joke that news happens when I go on my holidays. This 'curse of hendo' manifests itself in lots of ways, ie when Princess Di met her end Yours Truly was in Nashville, etc etc.
But this joke turned a bit sour this afternoon. I've been away for three days and returned to hear of the stabbing to death of a local shopkeeper, and a major police alert following the discharge of six bullets into the air outside my local convenience store.
Frightening, and very sobering. Ms T heard the shots from the second incident while sat watching the telly.
