This is an entertaining and amusing read!

Including some clever parts, eg:

Quote:
It wouldn't be a good idea if you telephoned. My mother always answers the telephone and I was in the process of receiving a lottery win but my mother thought it was a trick. Nothing I could say would persuade her otherwise and I lost out on my lottery win. That makes me very keen to receive the bank draught.


And the best bit, describing the car accident:

Quote:
I wasn't supposed to get paralysed though. That part went wrong but at least we got rid of Dad!


Chapter 2 is needed now, otherwise we're left hanging, wondering what happened after Paddy contacted Dr Ken chi Tao!

It is your first time to use western union so therefore none can blame you. It is always like this at the first experience. - Yes lad, and at the second, and the third... you'll see.

I don't want to guess the number - But, lad, isn't that the best fun to be had with MoneyGram reference numbers?

thank you for your encouraging and helpful comments!

I suffer quite badly from repetitive strain injury, which sadly means it will be a little while before chapter 2 appears. However, isn't it the professional thing to leave people longing rather than loathing? Smile Paddy
