Charles I

Thanks Basilisk. I used to find these reticent gruff old fathers irritating but the older I get the more poignant I find them, in part as I have no children. Perdition or Armageddon though, those are our destinations? Didn't Laney make it to heaven? I'd like to think she'd be waiting if I believed such things.


I suspect all reticent gruff old fathers expect their progeny are bound for Armageddon and Perdition, and always have. Somehow it never seems to happen, or at least not in wholesale quantities.
