Early September I go into hospital for removal of my appendix.Wait over 12 hours for the operation by which time it has burst.Nearly kills me.
Come back home,a few days later my car is vandalised with grey primer,white paint and other assorted detrius.A message is left on my bonnet and rear windsreen saying "cee you next Thursday".You can all work that four letter word out.
Only benefit I am a lot slimmer
But I cant photograph just yet.Its still painful

So was this a random attack or a personal one, and if the latter, what provoked it?

Things can only get better. Have you upset somebody? Sounds to me like somebody with a grievance rather than simple vandalism. Did you upset a model?!?!

As in life, so in a game of hazard, skill will make something of the worst of throws.
