My Grandfather

Highlights of my grandfather's life:

His father having a stroke and his mother being forced to take in lodgers at their house in London.

Playing soccer with the heads of Japanese soldiers in World War II.

Shooting a leopard in Burma.

Owning a mica mine.

Living in the house currently occupied by David Beckham (who bought it from Rod Stewart).

Running a horse racing track in Tehran.

Smuggling Scotch into the US in 2L soda bottles labled "horse linament".

Leaving his wife for a younger woman who spent all his money.

Wearing a bowler hat.

Being buried in a cardboard coffin.
