In memory of my Grandma on the eve of her 100th birthday.
Well Gran Gran, Happy Birthday old trout, wish you were here or we were still there while you were well enough to enjoy life. Wish I could throw you another party. Thank you for your confidence and all the times you nagged me to eat well and to give up smoking. You (and the Doctor in Malindi) will be pleased to hear that I took his advice and it is now thirteen years since I quit. My dedication to quitting has, as it turns out, outlasted my marriage. But we do have a wonderful daughter who takes her middle name from you.
