not sure if Chris Grant yesterday was appearing as Santa or Dick Turpin in Racing's pantomime, as was picked up elsewhere his massive drifter was laid at whatever price was asked even when seemingly controlling the race from the front. Fortunately for the place buyers connections weren't overly greedy. Happy Birthday, do something nice with loved ones if poss.

My dad, 2 years younger than you, retired '86 and mortgage (5bed house in berks) paid off in 90. Fairly middle/high ranking manager in BT and took first (and as it turns out best) 'redundancy' offer when they culled many many workers. The yoof of today don't know how lucky they are not having to worry about not losing their job for life and thus paying off that mortgage........

Fortunately it doesn't interfere with horse racing stuff

Don't know the month as he died when I was very young. Could possibly find out if I asked my soon to be 91 year old sister.

He was born same year as your dad, 1899.
