One thought on “Day 173 — Cynthia

  1. 95 – wow. Alex’s grandfather just turned 94, and has been quite surprised by a recent health problem. He has such an admirably limited sense of his own mortality that after a family funeral where his grandchildren were pallbearers, he turned to me with a pregnant pause, in which everyone at the wake expected something poignant to happen, and said: “Watching those girls carry that coffin down the aisle really reminded me that I’ve got a wardrobe upstairs that needs shifting!” We assumed he was joking, but no – he rang on Monday to complain that we hadn’t come round to move it! I hope we’re that feisty someday.
