    I have been asked by PM about my "vaccation" from the forum, well, it was an unexpected one.

    My Father passed away during the last week of August, and was found on the morning of Saturday 30th. This was the point at which I simply vanished from the forum, having been posting enthusiastically during the week.
    My nieces & nephew have also lost their Granddad.

    I have this afternoon spare to post this & deal with a couple of PMs, but the funeral is Thursday, and I leave tomorrow.

    I am acting as administrator for his estate, and am likely to be busy with this until all the paperwork has been prepared and sent off, after which I will have plenty of time on my hands waiting for the slow legal machinery to do it's work.

    Dad came to live with me for 3 years when I became ill & had to leave work. He was also responsible for the "gambling gene" that I have inherited, being brought up on a diet of horseracing systems, honed for half a century, only to fail nearly every time he actually BACKED one of the horses indicated in his calculations;)
    His work on horse racing systems is why I became interested in looking for "patterns" in other gambling games, such as Fruit Machines and even online slot games.
    None of this can have come from my Mother's side, she has no enthusiasm for gambling, and neither does my Brother.

    I'm sorry for your loss, Vinyl. A loss of a beloved parent is a milestone of life we hope never comes but we know it is inevitable. I hope you have many precious memories of him.

    I have been catching up & posting today, but I am soon going to be leaving to prepare for the funeral tomorrow - my bags are already packed.

    It's only 60 miles away, just over an hour's drive, so I will be back when I have a spare moment.

    Keeping active and trying to ensure "business as usual" means I am not left with a pile of worry at the end of this.

    I do now have more "business" to attend to, and anyone who has had experience of this under ENGLISH law may be able to help. My sister in law's father has quite some experience of probate matters, having gone through this for other relatives on her side of the family, and I have been advised to do it myself, rather than hand it over to the legal profession, which would be far more costly, and probably a good deal slower.
