Papa

My grandpa smoking what he has always called "a pipereekie." I thought he looked a wee bit Rooster Cogburn à la Jeff Bridges here, and his conversation as we smoked together outside Glasgow airport conformed to that image: "well the last time he cursed and bawled in ma hoose he ended up minus a tooth," he told me.

 

On that subject, my excitement at the Coen Brothers' adaptation of True Grit was vindicated: it's a beautiful, absorbing and damned entertaining film.

 

Glasgow, 2011.
