PREFACE

This narrative starts in two times and places.
The first time and place was the fateful day when I met my wife, a day that life as I, and many others knew it ceased to be. I blame myself for this and apologise unreservedly to the many people who have had their fate changed by my actions on that day. The second time is now, the place being the wonderful world of the internet, and EBay in particular. A web location where dreams are made and broken, for a few pence you can buy happiness or misery, and by the click of a mouse reputations are made and lost. I tell the stories through my transactions on EBay, and other places.  As these progress so the story of my wife, life, and relationship unfolds.
Once an action is completed or a word spoken it has existence, is created and real. The birth has been given to either a truth or a lie, and we all must live with the consequences GOOD OR BAD. The words “IF ONLY I HAD NOT” are so true and will forever haunt people who bid for, and win, auctions on EBay for something they do not want or cannot pay for. They are also true for life in general. It seems to be that we regret our past actions more than applaud them.

The words of Omar Khayyam are particularly apt in this instance and loosely translated read


 The moving mouse clicks,
And having clicked moves on,
All your undoes and deletes will not the message stop,
Nor all you’re banging of keyboards cancel out a word of it

 

I would like to thank my father who many years ago when I was a child and on holiday in Wales told me that to enable the cows to stay upright on the hill sides they were born with the legs on one side  shorter than the other. I  being only an infant at the time totally believed him.
