Article by Theodore Dalrymple

This article by Theodore Dalrymple is ostensibly about denial in the face of death (illustrated by a trip to an art exhibition) but halfway through you'll see what it's really about: dogs. Prepare to be crying by the end.

Too funny not to share

At the Belmont Club, a discussion goes on about technology, and how kids today don't even know how to work a rotary phone, because they've become so unfamiliar. Someone comments:
I have one of those huge old rotary phones.

My granddaughter brought a friend over the other day for the first time.

When the friend saw the phone the first thing she said was – β€œIt must be able to hold a lot of music.”
