Grandad, we will miss you. I still can’t play like Acker Bilk and I could probably still afford to lose a few pounds, but I will miss that roguish grin after being called out on starting a debate you didn’t really want to win. I still remember being up there on school holidays – porridge early in the morning after sleeping through your snores on a camper bed in the hall. I remember looking through your sketches and drawings, being shown the opals you had found up at the mines, playing darts in the backroom or pool at Christmas up at Ian and Kerin’s. Or just the conversations about the world that always were punctuated at regular intervals by a raised eyebrow and a chuckle… almost always by both of us. Goodbye Grandad, I love you.June 4, 2021
