No time for reading today, except for the last litttle part of Saturday's paper. Went to speak to a family whose (87 year-old) father died two days ago. Writing a bit of his history for the funeral on Thursday. He was, in his day, (as they say) a well known and liked politician. I am unsure why no-one in authority (as yet), has come forward with the offer of a state funeral for him. Perhaps at 87, he has been all but forgotten by the community for which he worked so diligently all those years. Still, let's face it, it is the family who will most appreciate the presentation of a "good" funeral. "Dignitaries" may give moving tributes, but they are soon washed away.
We'll see what the newspapers have to say about him.
Meanwhile, no more books to sell on eBay for a while.
And, no-one inspecting our house for sale. Que sera, sera.
