I really didn't think he had it in him. Travanti has said a thing or two about 'old money', but I had given that less credence than his grandfather's legacy, which I obviously had reason to be dubious about.
When we told Errol about the hassle we've been through today, he said, "So I'm going to have to come up with the tuition too." And I said (insert astonished expression here), "You can do that?" Yes, well, it's basically part of his retirement nest egg, and part family money. He commented that his brother wouldn't like it, but he expected to have it by Thursday.
Oh, and just incidentally? Errol's sister-in-law is a lawyer.
