Someone once asked Paddy Ashdown “Why write a diary?” He replied, “So my grandchildren would know what their Grandpa did.”
My mother died from Alzheimer’s disease a couple of years ago, and by the time I finally got round to pose the questions I should have asked her years before, she was beyond replying.
For five years I thought I was writing this for myself. Now I’m not so sure ………

WELL ANYWAY, IT AMUSED ME - No.10
I have no idea how the local Highways Department makes its signs, although I suspest they have a set of standard sized templates, on which their craftsmen imprint the destinations they want.
Anyway, however they do it, you'd think when the guy doing this one saw the size of the blank sign he had in his hands, and the length of the name he was putting on the sign, he'd have made bloody sure that the gap which clearly had to go somewhere, would be at the end, and definitely NOT the beginning of the sign.
