I thought that this was an auspicious sign, as in my home state of Queensland the rainbow is part of the Golden Casket lottery company's logo.
Of course a golden casket is also something you can be buried in, as well, so I thought that if there was a Trickster element in play here the sign might not be what I had hoped for.
I had forgotten it was Father's Day on that coming Sunday in Australia, as I no longer have a living father to buy a gift for, since he passed away in September last year.
Crystal Head Vodka, Father's Day and Death

I said to them yeah sure, but let's go somewhere local, as I was moving house on Monday and have to have everything ready to go by 11 am.
So we ended up going to an Indian restaurant in the same shopping complex the newsagent was in.
I couldn't help wondering if there was an Urban Turban in
Keith Urban's home town of Caboolture.
I'll have to ask my cousin, as she lives up there.
Maybe this restaurant chain should pipe Keith Urban songs over the speakers for more irony?-)

Thank God I've still somehow got a sense of humour and didn't apply Freudian psychology to the meaning behind their gift, as a black dog is a sign of suicidal depression following you around.

the power-lines and a spirit crossing over
In other words once this nearly 53 year old crosses over this townhouse will be my son's to split between themselves.
The thing was on Father's Day those power-lines that I photographed the rainbow over were humming like the end credits of the new 'Twin Peaks' TV show where it throws the Lynch/Frost production logo up on the small screen, which is powered by electricity, by the way:-)
I had never heard the power-lines buzzing this loud before and wondered why they were making such a racket this Sunday night.
They had to use the light on their iPhones to get some idea of my new place (thank you for that one Steve Job's, as much as I hate your invention).
I told them that we should pay a visit to their grandmother who lives about a half-mile down the road with my brother and WTF(?), their power was OK.
I thought is dad sending me a message here, being Father's Day and all and if so then what?
I have no idea of what to make of that rainbow message over the power lines, but I sure didn't win a cent in the lotto that week, but there was more weirdness when I moved in to my new purchase, but that's for another post.

UPDATE: 12th September, 2017
Last night I won $16 by getting four numbers, plus a supplementary number (which is no good to get with just four numbers, unless you a playing a system entry) with those same numbers I have been playing for years.
Two more numbers and I would have won $1 000 000.
