Three is the Magic Number

With three days to go, I’ve been thinking about the number 3 – the magic number, the charmed ones and, of course, Thunderbirds. As a child, my older brother had a toy Thunderbird 1 while, for some reason, I ended up with astronaut Alan Tracy’s space-faring Thunderbird 3. Is this where my love of spaceships began? The episodes with Thunderbird 3 were few and far between, but when they happened they were much the most gripping and I swelled with pride when it was my International Rescue vehicle in the thick of the action.

With three days to go, launch party plans are well underway. Will my Johnny Mackintosh badges arrive in time? Will we be able to make all the cakes we plan to? Most importantly, as the party is on a roof terrace right beneath the Spirit of London, will the sun shine? Storms are forecast.

I hope that from distant Melania, His Divine Imperial Majesty the Emperor (aka Bram) is looking on favourably and will give us a lovely evening.

  1. Thunderbird 4 was always my favourite, and that was in it even less than 3!! We picked the wrong ones didin’t we?
