My great grandparents, George and Mary Tough. George was somewhat… eccentric (crazy). I have his diary, which includes an ode to the River Hastings that goes on for many, many pages. He was, by all reports, a tyrant and his sons, William Macintosh and Earnest, left home (escaped) early. William was my grandfather and I have his name as my middle name. Uncle Earnest drank himself to death. A cheery bunch, no? #storagespace
