Two world wars, her country down the drain and back.

And the brains to see it back in trouble, and the steely politeness to do conversation, which requires more suitable subjects than politics.

And the brawn to drive a family of, what… 50, 60, 100? When you and your children and grandchildren have a few children, and early, you get to look at dozens of people across 4 generations.

Driving that family, that is quite another matter.

And driving she did. Till the end, in her way.

The stronger you are, the luckier you get. She felt lucky, I trust.

Three days ago.
