I don’t think I was the only one of his grand-children who went to Grampy, on very rare occassions, to borrow money.  Whenever I did, I knew I had better have my story straight and know how much I wanted and what I wanted it for.  He would look at you, as if sizing you up, then hand you the money, saying “I expect you to pay this back”.  I can honestly say it would never have occured to me not to.  Whereas it was not beneath me, certainly, to avoid accepting responsibility for my actions, I wouldn’t have dared cross that threshold with Grampy.  His personal sense of honour and integrity made it an impossibility.

Man schätzt, dass dieses risiko bei mehr als 20 zigaretten täglich etwa doppelt so hoch ist wie bei nichtraucherinnen
