Twin Parental Tragedies in a Father's Day Edition of the Newspaper?

Happy Hour with Lucy & Nikki: When My Dad Died...
The September 5th newspaper
From the September 5th Father's Day newspaper
I hadn't heard of the 'Happy Hour' podcast until doing a podcast search for the show when I had read the story in the
Father's Day edition of the Queensland newspaper pictured above.
I hadn't realized Pete had died on November 5th, I shouldn't forget to remember now.
He was only a few months older than me, so had we have gone to school together we would have been in the same grade, which kind of puts things into a personal perspective when hearing about his school days on the Gold Coast.

But what really struck me when I scrolled through the podcast episodes was that there was two episodes about 'The Veronicas' with one episode actually featuring them.
And in the same newspaper just a turn of the page away was a news story about the passing of their mother on September 1st, 2021, which is rather bizarre timing considering that Lucy's episode about the passing of her father was posted to Apple Podcasts on August 31st, 2021.

Ironically my football team's season came to an end on Father's Day because the Gold Coast Titans beat the NZ Warriors by 44 points and jumped the Sharks into the finals playoffs:-(
#67, Nine Perfect Strangers and the Promise & Peril of Psychedelics ... and Maybe Just Some Apophenia in the Mix as Well?-)
I received an email earlier in the year from the
Twin Towns Services Club asking me if I wanted to buy pre-sale tickets to 'The Veronicas' show and I remember thinking that I wouldn't mind being a fly on the wall, but not an old guy in the hall.
I have no idea whether that show actually went ahead with all of the lock-downs we have had on both sides of the Queensland/New South Wales state border this year ... but it was probably all written in the stars, right?
Psychics, Mediums, Astrologers, Gary Nunn and Huxley's 'Crome Yellow' ... is All Written in the Stars?
