Great God, now the Bearded Wonder is dead! We shall never see his like again, they don't make them like that any more, they threw away the mould etc etc.. This after Updike. Is it me or is this a peculiarly fatal January? Two members of my (extended) family have died, my old solicitor just bought the farm. Others, many others, have gone into the dark. We should count ourselves lucky if we make it to February. Be careful tomorrow. Midnight should bring salvation.
