For my Charity Grand National bet I have chosen Many Clouds with any winnings going to the Injured Jockeys Fund.

Hey Bill ---- This is Alan next door. I’m sorry buddy, but I have a confession to make to you. I've been riddled with guilt these past few months and have been trying to get up the courage to tell you to your face, but I am at least now telling in text as I can’t live with myself a moment longer without you knowing.

The truth is, I have been sharing your wife, day and night, when you're not around. In fact, probably more than you. I haven’t been getting it at home recently, but that's no excuse I know. The temptation was just too much... I can no longer live with the guilt and I hope you will accept my sincerest apologies and forgive me.

I promise that it won't happen again. Please come up with a fee for usage, and I'll pay you.

Cheers ... and have a Happy Easter (whatever you believe!)

Regards, Alan.

Bill, feeling insulted and betrayed, grabbed his gun, and shot his neighbour Alan dead. He returned home where he poured himself a stiff drink and sat down on the sofa.

He took out his phone where he saw he has a subsequent message from his neighbour.


Hey Bill --- This is Alan next door again. Sorry about the slight typo on my last text. I know you'll figured it out anyway, but I’m sure you noticed that my autocorrect changed ‘WiFi’To‘Wife’

Technology hey?!? Hope you saw the funny side of that. 

Regards, Alan.

Talking Alan.. Not the same one as above but Alan Thomas who sent over an eamil on Sunday.

My sincerest apologies for my outburst mr bailey....

Thanks Alan.
