I hear lots of great stories in my job and today was no exception.
When she was a child, this lady (whose funeral I did today) went, with her brother, to visit the Prime Minister (who is the head politician here). The P.M.'s wife let them in (!) and they gave the P.M. two presents - a packet of cigarettes and a Mars bar.
They were given a glass of lemonade for their kindness.
There is NO was you could waltz up to any dignitaries home these days and not only knock on the door, but be let in!
As for the gift of cigarettes!!!!!
The Mars bar would have been nice - I haven't had one for years!



Now these days you have to be careful who you let in your home. That is so sad that the world is like this. A Mars bar would be great right now.
