the occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way.
On Moday, March 27th, we had to take the Skytrain to Vancouver to sign a single paper at my Dad's broker. A single paper! It took less than 2 hours.
When we got back to Surrey, to our beloved truck that we had left at a secured, pay, parking lot was totally VANDALIZED.

We have a really good anti-theft device on the truck so they were unable to steal the truck!!! Thank goodness for that. They didn't try to get into the bids in the bed of the truck. Thank goodness for that.
But what a mess. Insurance covers it all but what chaos. We had to rent a car. We have to replace all our possessions. Crazy things they took. Our big cooler which we keep on the back seat for when we grocery shop. Cloth shopping bags, how convenient for them to load everything in to.
My beloved prescription sunglasses, our 350 watt invertor, candy, pop etc. Worst of all. Doug had 5 thumbs with his writing and pictures on. And we had photocopies of our identification in the glove box. That was a big worry but we have since made all the investigations and because all the identification was expired. We have checked our credit bureau and they are alerted.
We have the truck back now and are gradually getting our stuff back. As I write this I cannot believe it was less than a week ago that this happened.
and so... the serendipity you say?
Doug absolutely loved the little car we rented. He wants one. We cannot have a car and a truck. So... we have been looking at motorhomes!
For a couple of years, I have wanted to get a small C class motorhome and to have two rv's. One for big journeys and one for small ones. Doug was not enthused.
And so we look for a bigger one that we could tow a car, sell the truck and 5er.
So far our favourite.
A 37' Newmar Canyon Star. Love the floorplan. Notice 1 1/2 bathrooms, washer/dryer, big shower and 4 tvs (not that we want 4 tvs)
So we were tentatively talking to the salesman at the rv dealer and he asks about my Dad's house that we have to sell. He wants to buy it for his Dad whose sister lives just blocks away. Full asking price. He's going to come and see it this week and will have an Agreement for Sale drawn up and when we are ready (after probate is complete), bingo! done!
