Verdun. I've always found the best bit of a funeral is the standing outside when its all over, when people can relax at little, and the stories start to roll off tongues. I learnt so much about my grandfather from his work colleagues (police) and his "adventures" that I'm sure he thought were long forgotten!
I hope it goes "well" tomorrow.
Reggie and I are now sat on the sofa: he's had over three hours of w.a.l.k.i.e.s today so far (I had to drop my car off at the garage in the next village, then collect it, then get him used to my car [its quite different to my partners that he went in first] so went for a drive in the countryside and found a nice wood to explore...) so I'm hoping he'll stay settled now for a while. I'm trying to get my scout pack sorted... its going well can't you tell?
