“You can’t possibly think the record should still stand. When you read the stories it’s very clear your grandfather cheated.”
“Cheated? Pop-pop? I don’t think so.

She leant back in her recliner and took another sip of her Serengeti Smoothie. Her long tanned legs stretched in front of her, glistening from the thin layer of baby oil she’d applied minutes ago. She wore her favourite pale apricot sundress. It not only fit her extremely well but she’d once seen Zephyr walk into a pole when she walked past him wearing this particular dress.
