MikeM – part 2

As a sort of follow-on to my last post about the death of my father-in-law, I want to post this obituary which was written by him for his own father in 1990. Apparently the newspaper was reluctant to print it at first, but eventually they did. It’s quite funny and says a bit about MikeM’s sense of humour. Note that “Gertie” was the computer. obituary I wish I could have told him before he died that I’m happy. I know it doesn’t always seem that way from my blog but that’s just because I don’t bottle anything up. I tend to let it all out.

I want to post another song which I know he would have liked. This is the Queen of the Night aria (Der Hölle Rache kocht in meinem Herzen) from Mozart’s Magic Flute. My Granny liked this opera too so this is for her as well. In fact, is there anyone who does not like it?


  1. PS I’m so glad you are happy Rachel 🙂 People read my blog and think that if I’ve written something particularly dark that I’m in a bad way when they read it days later but when ‘m feeling better for getting it all out. The beauty of blogging, being able to ‘get it all out’ with a rant or a rave or a dirgy poem or two, is what it’s all about! So I understand just what you mean 🙂
