Restoring my faith in humanity

Today has been a day of contrasts. I went down to Bosham this morning for a stroll in the sunshine before a concert I was due to perform in at the village church this afternoon. When I returned to my car (which I’ve had for precisely four months) before the concert I discovered that someone had driven into it, damaging two of the doors, and had left the car park without leaving their contact details. Needless to say I was furiously angry at this turn of events. However, one kind soul had evidently seen the accident and left a note under my windscreen wiper containing the registration number of the car in question, the time of the accident and their phone number. Once I got home I called the police and my insurers to report the damage. Thankfully the other driver is insured so I should be able to claim the cost of repairing the damage from their insurers. The upside of all this is that I was so furious at the situation that I put all my pent up frustration into my playing and the Vivaldi Concerto (in which I was one of four soloists) went better than I’ve ever played it before! As I left the church after the concert I found Jack, a well known local cat, sitting out on the pavement watching the world go by. He’s a lovely old fellow and happily accepted a good fuss from me in return for having his photo taken - a lovely end to an otherwise mixed day.
Lsample Great post! Take the good with the bad I suppose.

djnana It looks as if I could touch his whiskers in the first shot - so three-dimensional! And I prefer the single-eye photo to the full-face "CAT-ture"!

Jarvo Super images. Glad everything turned out better than you'd thought it might.

danrav So glad everything is turning out OK for you Helen. How small of the person to just drive away.... Jack is so cool. Glad you had "smashing" performance - pun intended....

lookagain I'm glad someone was there to witness it....and that they helped you out! Bad luck with the car, but at least you got a great concert performance out of it. Great cat shots, Helen!

josy63 There's nothing like an on all fours friend for become reconciled with the world. Furthermore he knows how to pose majestically :))

Annbramwell Oh No! How annoying, than goodness for the observant passerby... lucky Jack was there to help make you feel better... and I am sure Vivaldi was applauding in his grave!
