David McFeeters Snr.

My Granda died a couple of weeks back. It is the first time that anyone close to me has ever died, so I wasn't really that sure what you are supposed to do in such a situation.

He was a pretty straight up old guy. Nothing too fancy or complicated about him, he just called a spade a spade as some would say.

He had a good run, the old guy was 84. He had typed out this brilliant letter on an old typewriter and put it in an envelope, marked "In the event of my passing". He thanked us for being his family and told us not to be sad because he was a better place. He had another sheet with exactly how he wanted the funeral, it was incredible.

He had a stroke a couple of years ago and the doctors told him he couldn't drive. He had to sell his car, but then kept going back to the doctor to ask if he was well enough to get his licence again. The doc eventually gave in and said yes, and the next day he went out and bought a new car, sport model.

Chained To This Electrical Box

September seems to have been spent sitting at this desk plugging away on this computer, only broken up by meal times and social outings. Nothing major really to do, just small things that need done.

I find that if something needs done, the only way I can do it is to sit all up night until it's finished. I like when it's late and you're the only one up, and for such an occasion you need some low-key tunes flowing. Here is what has been keeping me sane:

The XX - XX

Arcade Fire - Funeral

Logh - Every Time A Bell Rings...

Tom Waits - Closing Time

All Ireland Ultimate Frisbee Champs

Some photos from the All Ireland Champs a couple of weeks back. The guy took some incredible pictures, hopefully he won't hunt me down for crimes against copyright.
