So here is my entry:
James and Uncle Max had met a few times but only spoken twice, once on graduation day and once when Max had gone to the pub for Claire's birthday. Claire still remembered him tottering in on his ebony cane, his cravat neatly tied and the creases in his trousers razor-sharp and straight. 'I'm not stopping, my dear,' he had called, in his most refined former-nationally-syndicated-journalist voice. 'I was just passing and wanted to wish you all the best.'
Claire's mates had all loved him. How many people had a well-spoken, beautifully dressed and super-cool old man in their lives?
