And in today's news............

Mummy is asking about her parents. Her sister, who called to offer birthday greetings, tried to gently explain that if Mummy is 76 today, Daddy would be 111 and Granny would be 109. SILENCE. No comprehension. The words must be said, "They are no longer with us." SILENCE. SADNESS. Less than 5 minutes later, "What about Mummy & Daddy?" Shades of Apple, Table, Penny.
