When I worked as a telephone lineman I cut a lot of rope and always carried a good knife, and shears. I had this one knife I really like, a Rigid RG21 made in Japan. Surgical steel, solid build and a look about it that I thought was perfection. Well I lost it after a couple of weeks and when I got around to ordering another one, they were no longer available. I searched the web from time to time and when I finally saw one it was just too much money. Fast forward to yesterday, I invited two old buddies to lunch at my house. These guys had been good friends but had a falling out five or so years ago. They wanted to bury the hatchet and agreed to the get together. The weathermen predicted a real bad storm so one of them had to cancel. I was happy to see my other buddy and he was disappointed our other friend could not come. He said he had brought him a peace offering and showed me... the Rigid 21 brand new in the box!!! When I spoke to our friend later in the afternoon I told him about the knife and he said keep it. Coincidence? I don't know, what are the chances? So, what about you, any coincidences that seem really strange?
