The Saturday List #108 - My ten worst years

Everyone has been saying that 2016 is the 'Year from hell", what with the death of Lemmy, Bowie and Ali (to name but a few of the victims of the cursed year). But is it your worst year? Does it make the top ten? For me the biggest family tragedy so far (touch wood) has been the passing of our fmily Boxer dog, Tilly. Last night, we were out in Sheffield who had lost a mum and a dad. I think for them, it will be an especially cursed year. So here are my top ten annus horribilis

1. 1987
2. 2008
3. 2009
4. 1984
5. 2000
6. 1970
7. 2016  (* its not over yet)
8. 1975
9. 2015
10. 2011

So for me it is only the seventh worst of the 54 years I've been on the planet. I don't know if that is a good or a bad thing!
