    Move over, Evelyn Waugh and Jessica Mitford!

    By the time I was halfway through Twisty’s post, I was crying.

    With laughter.

    Condolences to Twisty, that piece was brilliant. Some time later it would be great to hear more because the whole scattering ritual is replete with opportunities for absolute farce, though best enjoyed at some few years distance.

    Just to be clear, I meant that Twisty’s writing was fabulous. To be able to come out of losing a parent, and then going through an experience like that and still write about it with humour is a mark of true genius.

    Thanks for condoling me, yall. My pop would be delighted to know that some small echo of his influence has reached all the way to Australia.

    From all that you’ve written and linked to, your Dad sounds like he was truly a Decent Dude, Twisty. May his influence spread wide and linger long.
