We have a Funeral Director who is a sponsor of my club, all club members receive a club discount for his services! Unfortunately, I seem to be attending more funerals of members of my vintage or older each season.
In all the funerals I have attended over the years I have never seen a eulogy printed out and in nearly all the cases the Funeral Director has arranged the printing of the order of service.
Your friends and acquaintances don't live and die in Oundle do they. I can well see how this could be a peculiar Oundle thing.
Funnily enough, the son in law of one of our oldest and best loved alickadoos moved to Oundle and works at the school. He also joined the local rugby club and I think is still on the committee there.
Think he is due to attend a former players lunch at my club in November will ask him if he knows anyone called Globus in Oundle or any of the local town councillors!!
We'd be happy to host him for a beer.
What part of the school is he in? Just had a lesson from the head of percussion there and our friends played and sang at our wedding reception and those of the kiddiwinks.
With the trumpet player from the Barmy Army and his wife.
And a renowned opera singer.
But I could just be fibbing. I'll let others decide.
You slip from truth to fiction so seamlessly sometimes I doubt if you even know when you are fibbing.
