A fellow got up one Saturday morning with the odd feeling that something about this day was to be different. He really felt that something unusual was about to happen. Maybe this would be his lucky day.
Galcing out of the bedroom window, he looked at the thermometer in the garden: 33 degrees.
He went downstairs to find that the clock had stopped at 3 o’clock.
He picked up the newspaper and read the date: it was the 3rd of the month.
Threes – that was it!
He grabbed the paper and flipped it open to the racing section.
Sure enough in the 3rd race, there was a horse named Trio!
The fellow hurried to the bank, drew out his life savings and bet it all on the horse to win.
The horse came in third.
